In a message dated 10/10/2006 7:01:03 PM Eastern Standard Time,The older Arista films (not Arista II) were Ilford. In fact, I once got a bunch of rolls of Arista which had Ilford stickers on them. When Ilford decided not to make custom brand products any more Freestyle had to find another source. I think they are using more than one now. At least some Arista is Foma (Arista EDU) and I seem boxes with other countries of manufacture on them. Arista paper doesn't seem to have ever been Ilford, I don't know who made the stuff I used. Current Arista paper is made by several manufacturers, Kentmere among them.
I asked myself this question a while back and decided that, if it isn't
Ilford, it is made in the same plant that makes Ilford. Ultrafine is apparently
made in England, and they claim that Ilford no longer makes film. One fellow on a
forum said that Ultrafine, Arista (Freestyle) and a number of other "private
labels" are made in England.
