• Ottens flavors

We're proud of our flavor portfolio and believe we offer great opportunities for customers who share our passion for exploration.

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.

Flavor of the Month



Hispanic flavors continue to trend upward. Jalapeño, traditionally seen as a savory flavor, is now crossing categories, keeping this mainstream flavor on our trend radar. 

This past year, several alcohol companies featured peppers and heat in their product lines. We expect to see jalapeño make its way further into the sweet segment in 2016, providing a sweet heat treat for muffins, donuts, cookies, and cakes!

Rooted in the community

Ottens Flavors has always had a strong connection to the Philadelphia area, and we're proud to give back to our local community and city: especially through ACT NOW!, a community outreach program for the less fortunate.

Ottens Flavors hosted a drive for school supplies for UrbanPromise, an organization that works with underprivileged youth in the Camden, NJ area to achieve educational success.

On October 25, Ottens Flavors’ employees, families and friends participated in the JDRF Walk to change the future for people living with type 1 diabetes by raising money for research.

Ottens Flavors Annual Turkey Drive - Ottens Flavors’ employees held an annual Thanksgiving Drive for ACHIEVEability, a Philadelphia-based non-profit organization that helps low income, single parent, and homeless families in the Philadelphia area. The organization helps families become self-reliant by providing a full range of academic, employment, housing and family support services to maximize each family's growth. Through the Ottens Flavors employees efforts, we donated 50 Thanksgiving meals to local families in need.
