Puratos is an international group offering a full range of innovative products, raw materials and application expertise to the bakery, patisserie and chocolate sectors. Our headquarters are just outside Brussels (Belgium), where the company was founded in 1919. Almost a century later, our products and services are available in over 100 countries around the world and, in many cases, are produced by our network of local subsidiaries. Above all, we aim to be ‘reliable partners in innovation’, helping our customers around the world to deliver nutritious and tasty food to their local communities.
A unique collection of natural ferments providing a range of flavours
In 2013 we launched our «Puratos Sourdough Library» in the Center for Bread Flavour in Saint-Vith, Belgium. It gathers an authentic collection of sourdoughs (of different flavours) from all over the world. Our initiative has provided a real heritage source for bakers and consumers around the world.
Our aim is to preserve the biodiversity of leaven agents and the know-how on using sourdough in bakery.
