History of BSA and Frutarom
Since 1989, BSA has been supporting food industry players in their drive to excel and innovate.
In May 2015, Frutarom acquired BSA. Combining Frutarom’s expertise in natural flavours and technological ingredients with BSA’s experience in the food processing industry allows the company to offer an even more complete range of products and services to all its customers.
BSA serves two types of clientele, industrial and artisanal, with its support division for catering trades which meets the specific needs of butchers and artisan deli meat makers. Our main operations are located in Montreal, Quebec. Our sales and distribution office in Mississauga is dedicated to the Ontario and Western Canadian market. Our products are distributed across Canada.
Today, BSA employs over 150 professionals and has a 125,000 square foot plant.
Throughout our growth, we have remained true to our original mission: to offer superior quality ingredients, provide personalized technical support and meet the specific needs of each customer. This is the secret of a successful partnership!
