In 1947, a new kid on the block arrived in the vinegar industry. That year, Cees Bakker acquired the vinegar plant Groenland en Zn and changed the name to De Burg. In the following decades, the company experienced rapid growth, resulting in the current production locations: Burg Azijn (NL), Burg Siroop (NL), Burg Vinegar Belgium (BE), Burg Vinaigres France (FR), Burg Ocet(CZ) and Burg Essig (DE). At these six locations, Burg Group produces vinegar for food, cleaning vinegar and fruit syrups. In 2022, over 375 million liters of natural vinegar, vinegar-related products and syrups were produced. With their consumer products they mainly serve the private label market in more than 30 countries worldwide, along with the products under their own (brand) name. Currently, the third generation of the Bakker family co-owns the company.
The vision of Burg Group is having a healthier, tastier and cleaner world. They want to make this happen by playing a leading role worldwide in a sustainable and fair way with natural vinegar and syrups in the markets selected by them.
