A great family story
Burg Vinaigres from France was founded in 1843 and is situated near the Cognac and Bordeaux regions.
This conscious choice was made by the founder of the company at that time, Mr. Conte,
as he wanted to be close to the vineyards that produce a wide range of high-quality wines.
Mr. Fuchs, who bought the factory in 1923, changed the name to Vinaigrerie Fuchs.
Today, the name Fuchs is still used for a wide variety of premium quality vinegars.
After having passed through other hands several times, the Vinaigrerie Fuchs
location was purchased by the Bakker family (owner of Burg Group) in 1998.
Burg Group is a family entity that was founded in 1947 in the Netherlands
by Cees Bakker, and is a leading European producer of fermented vinegars.
Burg Group consists of five vinegar factories located throughout Europe,
all of which were previously private companies.
Since the acquisition by Burg Group, the Burg Vinaigres factory has been
modernized, strengthening its position in the domestic market as well as
in international markets. With certification by various institutions such as IFS,
BRC Food, Ecocert (for organic vinegars) and A.E.O. (Authorized Economic Operator),
Burg Group products are sold in more than forty countries worldwide.
Approximately thirty engaged employees ensure the production of the high-quality vinegars.
The company is increasingly focused on a sustainable approach to both products and process.
