The story behind

About Colac

Our history

  • 1981

    It all began in 1981: that was the year Colac was founded. It was the first company in the world to launch a unique ice cream paste, used as a base for high-quality ice creams.

  • 1990

    In the nineties, Colac considerably expanded its production facilities in Malle. It explored new markets and produced top-quality toppings and dessert sauces. They quickly got a taste for bigger things, and before long they were working on traditional and organic fruit preparations too. Colac products are now a must for artisan and industrial kitchens alike.

  • 2004

    In 2004, Colac was taken over by its current managers. The company continues to focus on quality and innovation.

  • 2010

    In 2008 and in 2012, the product range was modernised and expanded further. At the same time, the production site was expanded a second time. Colac wants to be the top market leader in dessert sauces. On Top Of Your Creations is our motto.

  • 2017

    A third wave of expansion took place in late October 2017. This time, the entire site moved to a new building in Beerse. The new premises is over 10,000m² in size and has a state of the art fleet of machinery to make products of higher and higher quality.


Our success begins with quality.

Bringing outstanding quality products to the market and offering them at an honest price is what we’re all about.
