Bell Flavors & Fragrances Middletown Obtains ISO 22716 Certification

Bell Flavors & Fragrances is excited to announce the certification of ISO 22716 for our manufacturing facility in Middletown, NY. This certification not only recertified the botanical manufacturing area but also includes liquid fragrance and spray dry fragrance. Bell received high marks with only two small non-conformances.


ISO 22716:2007 gives guidelines for the production, control, storage and shipment of cosmetic ingredients. These guidelines cover the quality aspects of our products and are the basis of our quality management system for liquid fragrances, spray dry/plated fragrances and botanical extracts.


Crystal Avant, Manager, Quality Systems in Middletown says, “This auditing scheme was initially undertaken to comply with customer requirements. Over the past year Bell has expanded the scope to include all fragrance products along with botanical products to ensure every aspect our manufacturing systems are covered by quality systems.”


Norman Appel, Vice President, Bell Middletown states, “Attaining the ISO 22716 certification was the culmination of over a year of coordinated efforts between all of our departments, which included our suppliers, transportation companies and outside contractors. To be awarded the certification after all these efforts was a very nice reward that I’m sure all our customers will appreciate.”


In addition to the ISO 22716, Bell Middletown has obtained certification of the Safe Quality Food (SQF) 7.2 Level 3 in December 14 to include butter flavor production and aroma chemical resale products.
