As part of the new brand identity, IFF has launched a new tagline, purpose, brand commitments, and cultural attributes and values. The Company believes that these brand components will support the success of the four divisions that now comprise the new IFF.

IFF is a force for good in its communities worldwide, accelerating sustainability-driven change across its industry.

The company’s purpose, Applying science and creativity for a better world, continues to inspire everyone at IFF to push past traditional industry boundaries and commits to be a force for a better and more sustainable future.

Core to the company’s strategy for success, a central vision:Be the partner for essential solutions, reflects its vital leadership role in the global value chain for consumer goods and commercial products, and deep commitment to be guided by a customer-centric approach in everything we do.

The IFF brand continues to be underpinned by three commitments, adapted to better reflect the new organization.

  • Question Everything: We’re here to shake things up and forge a new path. We’re working at the cutting edge of artistry and science and encourage new discoveries at every opportunity.

“Today we start a transformative journey together to become a center of innovation for our customers,” said Andreas Fibig, IFF Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Our leadership team believes passionately in the importance and benefit of being a purpose-driven enterprise. We will lead not simply by relying on an unmatched portfolio and flawless execution, but by quickly unlocking new innovations as we tap into our shared passion for pairing science and creativity to deliver for our customers. We are creating an agile, empowered and innovative business that provides exceptional service and delivers on our commitment to be an essential partner for our customers.”

Mr. Fibig continued, “Critical to our success is our ability to foster an execution culture and embed values that support our promises to our people, customers, consumers and our communities. To that end, we have updated our cultural principles to ensure we have the foundation in place to empower our people to deliver on our commitments.”

IFF’s merger with N&B prompted the Company to establish a new set of core values and cultural principles as the foundation of its growth strategy. This resulted in the following cultural principles:

  • ACT AS AN OWNER: We take ownership and work with passion and integrity. Our teams are empowered to make decisions and help the entire organization thrive.
  • BE AGILE: We constantly push for progress and respond to the needs of our customers and the world with speed, skill, and creativity.
