Frulact was created in Maia, in 1987. The launch of this unit was the culminating point resulting from its mentors' years of experience in the industry of dairy products. In 1998, Frulact expanded to Ferro, Covilhã, with a new plant, localised nearby great fruit cultivation areas of Cova da Beira subregion. The following year was benchmarked by winning new strategic borders. Frulact arrived to Morocco to supply a range of industries from the food sector and mass consumption market. Frulact continued its expanding process and arrived to Tunisia in 2000 with a new plant, which is operating as a platform to supply North Africa and Middle East markets. In 2006 a new unit started to operate in Tortosendo, Covilhã. This is a strategic plant localised nearby areas with high fruit production levels. Even in 2006, Frulact moves once more forward to win European markets by purchasing a French company of the sector – Granger Bouguet Pau (GBP).

Research and development

In partnership with different entities, among them universities, Frulact has been developing research studies in different areas, such as: methodologies to optimise the quality of fruits designed for industrial use, heat exchange technologies, pesticide detection methodologies, development of natural colourings designed for food industry, among others.
