Welcome to The UK Flavour Association

 

Variety is the spice of life and flavourings help to bring that variety to consumers in a safe, accessible and affordable way.

 

The UK Flavour Association represents the interests of the flavouring industry in the UK. We are the leading organisation dealing with the legislative and technical needs of the industry and are active in Europe through our membership of the European Flavour Association, EFFA.

 

EFFA is a member of the International Organisation of the Flavouring Industry IOFI, which represents the industry on a global basis.

 

The UKFA was formed in 1917 as the British Essence Manufacturers’ Association, changing our name in 2012 to reflect the wider membership that now plays a role in the Association. The Association currently represents 40 company members.

 

This year, we are celebrating 100 years of flavour innovation in the UK. Visit our Centenary event page to find out how we are marking the occasion.

The objectives of the Association are:

  • To proactively promote and protect the interest of its members
  • To encourage members to maintain high standards in the conduct of their business dealings and to adhere to the EFFA and IOFI Codes of Practice
  • To represent the interests of members both within the UK and internationally
  • To provide coordination on regulatory, safety, technical and scientific issues
  • To provide a forum for members to raise concerns and resolve issues related to the industry.
The UK Flavour Association has issued a statement regarding the use of flavourings in e-cigarettes which can be found here.
