Tough said that IFF now operates in over 100 countries around the world and helps more than 4,000 customers develop new flavors and fragrances. While many may not know the company by name, this behind-the-scenes company is at the heart of many of the products consumers use every day. Tough explained that when a company like Lancome is looking to develop a new fragrance, it turns to IFF, which works with the brand to first determine its needs, then works with the company to develop that magical scent it's seeking.
