Our Story


Global Reach. Family Approach.

Since 1927, Illes Seasonings & Flavors has been creating innovative flavor solutions for retailers, processors, restaurant chains and QSR accounts nationwide. We provide an unprecedented depth of culinary and R&D personnel as well as manufacturing capacity for dry and liquid systems while maintaining the personal customer relationships that could only come from a family-owned company.

Our customers tend to feel like they’re part of the family, too. We regard their business challenges as ours and go out of our way to solve whatever manufacturing, production and packaging issues they bring our way. As a result, our customers tend to keep coming back because they know we’re as committed to their success as our own. It’s a reputation for service that has become known throughout the whole industry. 

Finicky, But Friendly. 

We admit it: every last one of us is very particular about food and flavor. Highly demanding about ingredients. Very discriminating with tastes. Stringent standards for our suppliers’ quality and our own work. For instance, we only buy ingredients from approved vendors who demand the same quality we expect. But we remain just as personable with our customers as we are persnickety with our vendors.

When Illes partners with you, you’ll find we demand this kind of excellence from ourselves from product inception to commercialization. We’ll be upfront and honest in all our dealings, and we refuse to sacrifice our integrity or the quality of our products for short-term results.

Finicky but Friendly

Taking Responsibility For Our Work And Our World.

At Illes we strongly believe in achieving success in ways that honor ethical values and respect our employees, communities and the natural environment. We match the responsibility to our customers with that of protecting and bettering our people, communities and environment.
