About Us

History of PMP

PMP Fermentation Products, Inc. traces its heritage back to the brewing industry in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The classic art of the German brewmaster was the wellspring of knowledge for the development of efficient processes for fermenting gluconate. Early PMP patents described the emergence of special liquid gluconate formulations. In 1985, PMP was acquired by a prominent pharmaceutical company. The fermentation processes were upgraded with sophisticated Japanese computer controlled technology and the application of the rigorous standards of the pharmaceutical industry. In 2003 Fuso Chemical Company of Japan acquired PMP Fermentation and combined their unique skills in the production of fruit acids with PMP’s special talents for producing Gluconate products.

The new company has emerged as a global leader in the fermentation of safe, natural products. PMP Fermentation & Fuso Chemical Co.’s diverse products contribute to a more healthful life for millions of people worldwide through food safety and preservation, and as a source for environmentally friendly chemicals.
