The Puratos Group has announced the acquisition of Profimix, a key supplier of improvers, bakery mixes and confectionary items based in Prisovice, Czech Republic.
The family-owned company Profimix was founded in 2007 by Marek Vasa and grown over the years to reach a turnover above € 4 million and employ 20 people today. In recent years, Profimix built a strong position on the Czech market through its brand “Pekaruv Mlyn,”. The company has an organic certified production manufacturing unit and specializes in flour parameters knowledge and analysis.
Health & Well-Being is an important aspect of our strategy and a cornerstone of our future growth. Welcoming Profimix to the Puratos family reflects our long-term commitment to improving the health and well-being of consumers everywhere. Like Puratos, Profimix has been focusing on Health & Well-Being products for several years and concentrates on producing value-added products, especially those with a high content of grains, seeds, proteins, and vitamins. In our latest Taste Tomorrow research, we found that 79% of consumers rank grains and seeds as the number one contributor to health and taste aspects in bakery products, so investing in this area of business helps us – and our customers - satisfy that demand.
