Lionel Hitchen Essential Oils

The Company is a leading supplier of ingredients to the food, beverage, and flavours industries.

In 1965, Lionel Hitchen, with twenty years experience of the essential oils industry, established LIONEL HITCHEN (ESSENTIAL OILS) LIMITED to manufacture concentrated citrus oils.

Over the years the business has achieved a strong growth pattern both in volume of citrus oils and by diversification into the manufacture of oleoresins and flavours.

Today, working in a close relationship with long established suppliers, the Company provides a comprehensive manufacturing and bespoke flavour creation service.
