Company History

In operation since 1943

FACI Group was founded in 1943 as a result of the commitment and dedication of founders Italo and Giovanni Rossi, who decided to start a business dedicated to the production of animal fats derivatives as well as vegetable oils.

Growth and development

Prioritizing quality, since 1943

Since the 1950s, when its core business consisted of producing stearine and stearates, FACI Group has grown and developed steadily. This led the company to open up to new markets in the 1970s and 1980s. In fact, 1987 marked the actual beginning of its international expansion. Thanks to key take-overs and partnerships, FACI Group has now become a world leading company in its industry.
