About Us

Welcome to EFFA

The European Flavour Association has been active for more than half a century. It was established in 1961 as "Bureau de Liaison des Syndicats Européens des Produits Aromatiques". In 1991 it changed its name to European Flavour and Fragrance Association (EFFA) and since 2009 EFFA changed its scope to focus only on flavourings.

Our members are flavour houses and national associations from across Europe. At global level, EFFA is a member of the International Organization of the Flavor Industry (IOFI).
