Who We Are & What We Do

Kato Aromatics was established in 1971, and was quickly recognized as a world leader in the distillation and extraction of essential oils, commanding a 55% global market share in jasmine concretes and absolutes. Over the years, and with rapid leaps in technology and expansions in our production lines, a need for transformation was brewing and Kato Aromatics evolved to KFF.

Merging nature, science, passion, and expertise have risen with KFF over the years to become one of the top prestigious companies in the aroma industry in Egypt and the Middle East. With a devoted and dedicated team along with an exceptional and relentless research team of veterans, driven by creativity and a shrewd eye to all that is new and beneficial, combined  with state of the art technologies allowed us to expand and diversify our scope of operations; satisfying the ever-growing local and international demand for our products and creations worldwide.

KFF has a wide spectrum of high quality products; producing and exporting more than 60 essential oils, concretes, absolutes, oleoresins, botanical medicinal extracts, flavors, fragrances, and cosmetics with applications in a diverse array of industries.

In the early 90s, KFF branched out to hotel amenities and our ‘ESCENTIALS’ division was born. Partnering with some of the biggest names worldwide, our division is a one-stop-shop supplying luxury hotels with their amenities and accessories; alongside manufacturing customized amenities to our clients.

Pushing ourselves further, KFF is proudly launching its first brand ‘ZEN’ in 2017. With decades of experience in the making, ZEN is created with the sole purpose of offering hotels a unique brand that will set them apart and give their guests a sense of exclusivity.

In 2016, and after establishing and anchoring ourselves in the aroma and hotel amenities sectors, KFF is looking to further expand its operations to the retail sector; manufacturing, packaging, and supplying our clients with their own brands.
