Flavor of the Month


Concord Grape  

For many of us, concord grape is very nostalgic, bringing back memories of toast with jam or PB&J lunches. The sweet and sour flavor profile of our concord grape flavor will have you reminiscing of your childhood days.

Concord grape is the grape of choice for many sweet and beverage applications. Whether it’s mixed in a yogurt to create an unique profile, used as a filling for sweet pastries, or used to sweeten a cocktail, concord grape is extremely versatile. 



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.

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.
