Our Organization


Puratos’s journey began in 1919, just over a hundred years ago. What started as a father and son operation, evolved into a successful international business. Our company now offers a full range of cutting-edge services and ingredients to customers in the bakery, patisserie, and chocolate industry worldwide.

People have always been at the heart of what we do, and whether it’s working with artisans, industrial companies and retailers, or food-service enterprises of any size, we’re ready to take the next steps toward a better world together.
