The British Fragrance Association has changed its name to IFRA United Kingdom (International Fragrance Association United Kingdom).
Of the name change, director of IFRA UK Lisa Hipgrave, explained, “This is to bring the identity of the local association, which is already a member of IFRA, into line with the identity of the worldwide organization.”
IFRA global director communications Stephen Weller added, “The BFA has long been a member of the international network. But increasingly, the issues and challenges, as well as opportunities, have an international focus. For this reason, changes are occurring across a number of local fragrance industry associations so that the worldwide rebranding will help ensure a consistent approach by the sector across the globe. This signifies so much more than a mere name change: the rationale for this move is of huge significance to members in the UK.”
IFRA UK also announced its executive committee’s new chairman is Tony Dallimore of Phoenix Fragrances, and its new vice chairman is Neil Weaver of Seven Scent Ltd.
