In 2015, IFF acquired Ottens Flavors, a Philadelphia-based company with world-class capabilities and a strong commitment to innovative quality products. Together we will keep doing what we do best - pushing the boundaries on behalf of customers and consumers.
Smooth toasted notes with a creamy buttery profile, and sweet brown nuances
The sweet mixture of white sugar and molasses make up the perfect addition to any treat. Dark brown sugar has a slightly more complex flavor, one which people often characterize as similar to caramel or toffee. Brown sugar takes your creations to next level, providing that authentic homemade taste.
Brown sugar flavor is perfect for hot chocolate or coffee, sweet baked goods, blended into hot cereal, or used in a marinade for pork and ham. Give Ottens’ brown sugar flavor a try, just in time for baking season!
Ottens Flavors and IFF share rich histories. Over 130 years ago, Henry Ottens recognized a need for fine quality flavors in the food industry. Now part of the IFF family, Ottens continues to deliver on its commitment to flavor innovation throughout North America.
Giving Back this Spring! IFF-Ottens Flavors Host Seed Drive to Support Local Garden
Ottens Flavors continues to look for ways to give back to the community of Philadelphia by holding various fundraisers and events throughout the year. For the month of May, we held a Seed Fundraiser for spring, in honor of our local community garden, Bartram’s Garden.“Bartram’s Garden is a 45-acre National Historic Landmark, operated by the John Bartram Association in cooperation with Philadelphia Parks and Recreation. It is a destination and an outdoor classroom, living laboratory, and membership organization for ever-expanding audiences. The John Bartram Association’s mission is to protect and enhance the landmark Bartram’s Garden and House; advance the Bartram legacy of discovery, gardening, and art; and inspire audiences of all ages to care for the natural world.”Ottens employees purchased herbs and vegetable seeds which fueled a monetary donation to the garden.
IFF-Ottens Flavors Participated in the 2016 Global Energy Race Sponsored by Bimbo
On Sunday September 25th, IFF-Ottens Flavors participated in the 2016 Global Energy Race at Penn’s Landing, sponsored Bimbo Bakeries. Bimbo donated six slices of bread for each 3k race registration and 20 slices of bread for each 10k race registration to food banks including St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, and our local food bank, Philabundance.
Employees from IFF-Ottens were joined by their friends and family, who participated in both the 3k and 10k races. Additionally, they participated in fun activities after the race, including music, games and a group yoga session.
The race was such a success, it took the Guinness World Record for the most number of cities participating in one single race on one single day! Truly a global event, the Global Energy Race was held in four different cities in the U.S., and 21 cities across the world!
The IFF-Ottens team was happy to support this event and had a great time in the process!
Support American Cancer Society through Pink Pride Day!
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and IFF-Ottens supported the cause through dressing in Pink and making donations to the American Cancer Society.
Did you know that breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women? About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Together, IFF-Ottens Flavors raised funds to support the cause.
