Our story started 70 years ago in the hands of our grandfather, Lucien Ranson, an inquisitive baker who created and launched his own marzipan. Two generations and more than 300 employees later, we are still an independent family business with an insatiable appetite for the finest raw materials, ingredients, products and decorations.
During 70 years of Ranson, our focus has evolved from pure bakery wholesaler to both distributor and producer of products for Bakery, Chocolate, Catering, Ice Cream and the food industry. We always maintain a strong focus on added value in the form of quality and service.
From 1948 to today
Since 1948 we have grown from a small merchant in margarine for bakers to an international distributor and producer of ingredients and products for bakers, chocolatiers, the catering industry, ice cream manufacturers and the food industry.
Lucien Ranson, founder of Ranson Group, starts selling margarine to bakers.
Ranson in figures
70 years later, Ranson Group delivers from 7 branches to 3,500 professional customers in 32 countries worldwide. To achieve this, we have forged a close partnership with 300 suppliers who supply our raw materials and products from the finest sources in 34 countries. Our 27 representatives are on standby every day to provide Ranson customers with service and quality. That quality is delivered to your door daily by our 40 trucks.
As a baker I was looking for the right margarine for my preparations. It was so difficult to find that in 1948 I decided to start the distribution of it myself. And so family business Ranson came into existence.
Ranson offers you the broadest range of brands, products and raw materials from our distribution and in-house production. We always maintain a strong focus on added value in the form of the finest quality and an excellent tailor-made service. And the price is always right.
With more than 10,000 products from our distribution and production network in 34 countries, Ranson supplies a wide range of products to the food industry, bakeries, chocolatiers, ice cream manufacturers and the catering industry. Are you looking for a specific product? Please ask us! If we do not have the unique item in our extensive range, we will find it for you.
As a producer, we know: whatever you do, the quality of your raw materials and products is essential. We submit our own production process to the same criteria on a daily basis and we also make that possible for our customers. Our quest for quality is thorough and global and we apply the strictest standards regarding food safety, traceability and so forth. So you can be sure that Ranson supplies products that perfectly match your required specifications.
Do you need a fast delivery? Are you looking for a tailor-made product? Would you like to collect your raw materials when it suits you best? Do you want suppliers and representatives who know your business inside out? Do you want professional contacts who can help you come up with possible solutions? Do you need inspiration, tips and information? Would you like to follow workshops and demonstrations? Right! That is precisely the type of excellent service that Ranson delivers.
