Our History

Derivados Citricos, S.A. was founded in 1987. During the past 30 years we have gone through various phases; however the one thing that is constant is our vocation to producing quality products and never losing sight of our identity and business excellence.

Since then we have grown and gained invaluable experience. Our headquarters and production site is located in an area measuring over 15,000 m² in one of the biggest industrial estates in the Region of Murcia.
The Region of Murcia is the biggest producer of Lemons in Europe due to its perfect location which results in optimum cultivating conditions. This, coupled with our extensive and comprehensive industrial processing, allows us to take full advantage in order to create a full range of citric-derived products.
