Farber, became the controlling party of EIF and Frutarom. Since the 1990s, Frutarom has aggressively expanding by establishing itself overseas beginning with the acquisition of a small US company in 1990. Frutarom now has subsidiaries in Israel, the USA, the UK, Switzerland, Russia, Turkey, China, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Brazil, plus marketing offices in France, Romania, India, and Hong Kong.
