IFF recreated itself in February 2021 with acquisition of DuPont’s Nutrition & Biosciences business. This new company brings technical strengths in industrial biotechnology, chemical synthesis, and natural ingredients to applications in food, personal care, energy, and pharmaceuticals (among others). IFF employees bring their whole selves to work. The company thrives through its diversity and supports individuals so that they can contribute their best. Ongoing career development is facilitated through mentoring and training.
