Our company


Productos Aditivos was founded in 1929 in Barcelona, as a producer of saccharin and chloroform. Soon after the company started to evolve into what it is today: the sole European producer of saccharin and cyclamate, being the preferred partner for a large number of companies in the high-end of the food market and the pharmaceutical industry, throughout more than 60 countries.

During the last decade Productos Aditivos entered in several new ventures, with the production of Fortification Premixes, Polisucra® Sweetener-blends and Flavours. In all these fields we take advantage of our profound knowledge in R&D, Production, QC and Quality Assurance. Over 80 years of close cooperation with a wide range of companies throughout different industries, give us a solid background to offer significant added value also with these business lines.
