History – Brand

  • Francisque Alland, a chemist, and Alfred Robert founded the company ALLAND & ROBERT : trading of gum acacia,an ingredient widely used in the textile industry at the time.

  • In 1940, René Alland bought back all the shares from the Robert family.

    At the same time, Alland & Robert starts transforming the product by: crushing it, producing different granulations, and pulverization. Two product lines are developed and dedicated to gum karaya and gum tragacanth.

  • Bernard Alland began increasing production capacity by building Alland & Robert’s first plant at Port Mort in Normandy.

  • Frédéric Alland, CEO of Alland&Robert since 1984, has internationalized the company by taking it a step further in terms of sourcing and production processes.

    In 2002, the first spray drying tower was built in Port-Mort, followed by a second one in 2007 at the newly acquired production site in Saint-Aubin.

  • In 2013, Alland&Robert built its third spray drying tower. Alland & Robert is headquartered in Paris and has two facilities in Normandy. In 2015, Alland & Robert has manufactured over 13,000 tons of acacia gum.

    A five generation family company, Alland & Robert is nowadays the internationally recognized key player on the gum acacia market.
