About us

CARAGUM International® is a French company specializing in the formulation and production of innovative ingredients for the food and cosmetics industries. We are present in over 51 countries through a solid network of 28 distributors.

We are now a major player in the GEWR BG CG389 (E445) and GEGR CG116 markets. Over the years, our know-how has enabled us to specialize in stabilizers and thickeners for beverages and aromatic emulsions, gelling agent and stabilizers for plant-based meat, dairy and many types of food applications.

We have also developed CARACHEESE, a wide range of premixes for the production of cheese analogues.

We moved into our new headquarters and production facility in May 2022 to triple our storage space and R&D laboratory, all in a more environmentally-friendly building.
