Our History

Our history is the story of our journey. And we’ve been through a journey of exploration, discovery, and wonderment; a journey that has been proud and fruitful, from its humble beginnings to the dizzying heights we've scaled along the way.

 

To trace the origins of this journey we must track back to 1972. This was a time when Synthite had just begun to grapple with international quality norms. But even at its nascence, the company always showed the potential to blaze a new trail.

 

Today, as we account for more than 30% share in the global Oleoresin market, we are preparing to make new forays, set off on new expeditions into the world of food ingredients. But before we look to the future, let us have a glimpse into the past.
