Since we built our first plant in Schiedam - The Netherlands -
in 1931, we have been developing natural and sustainable
solutions for many industries. It all started with the industrial
use of natural lactic acid in dyes for leather and wool.
A couple of years later natural lactic acid was applied as a
food ingredient. Nowadays Purac is a leading company in
natural food preservation, lactic acid based bioplastics and
biobased chemicals with branches all over the world.
Experience, undisputed technical capabilities and groundbreaking
innovations have made Purac a global market leader. We take credit
for many great inventions.
Our team of 1100 employees is looking forward to a future where
our ambition and commitment will lead to products that will bring a
sustainable world within reach of mankind: True to our promise of
being 'pure by nature'.
