The Argentinian fragrance industry organization, CAFEPA (Camara Argentina de Fabricantes de Productos Aromaticos), has joined the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) as a full association member. The announcement continues IFRA's ongoing global reorganization and follows the announcement that South Africa's fragrance industry organization has joined the IFRA Europe regional committee. CAFEPA comprises flavor and fragrance manufacturing companies and works to achieve consensus on issues affecting the industry and represents its members towards the national Argentine regulators. As a full association member, CAFEPA is eligible for a seat on the forthcoming IFRA Latin America Regional Committee, representing the Argentine membership at regional and international levels.
“I am delighted to welcome CAFEPA and its members to IFRA as full association members,” said Jean-Pierre Houri, IFRA director general. “This is an exciting time at IFRA with our global reorganization taking hold and new members joining.”
“We are very pleased to be joining IFRA at this time,” said Ricardo Daniel Lucadamo of Symrise and president of CAFEPA. “IFRA’s new structure has enabled us to join the global family of fragrance associations and ensure that our Argentine members will have a strong voice both at home and abroad.”
