Why we do, what we do.

Our Story.

At SAMPOCHEM, our roots are deeply intertwined with Finnish heritage, drawing inspiration from the national epic 'Kalevala'. The SAMPO, a mythical artifact in the epic, symbolizes innovation and prosperity, mirroring our ethos as a company. This legendary inspiration fuels our commitment to pioneering advancements in the chemical industry.

Nestled in the heart of the Chemiepark Bitterfeld-Wolfen, Germany's oldest and one of Europe's largest chemical parks, SAMPOCHEM stands on a foundation rich in history and innovation. This park, spanning approximately 1,200 hectares, is a hub of industrial progress and diversity, hosting over 300 companies and employing around 12,000 people. It represents a legacy of transformation, where former state-owned enterprises have evolved into agile, modern corporations in a collaborative environment.

In this historic and dynamic setting, SAMPOCHEM thrives with a clear mission: to develop innovative chemical additives for food, feed, and industrial applications. 'Made in Germany' isn't just a mark of quality; it's a testament to our dedication to excellence and innovation. We strive to be at the forefront of the chemical industry, embodying the spirit of the SAMPO in every endeavor — transforming raw potential into tangible success, much like our mythic namesake transformed base materials into gold

Our Vision.

At SAMPOCHEM, our vision is creating a balance - a harmony between industrial progress, consumer well-being, and environmental sustainability. We believe in developing solutions that are not just effective but also ethical and sustainable. To demonstrate our unwavering dedication to superior quality and safety, SAMPOCHEM ensures that our food additives undergo rigorous controls and proudly bears the EU-organic certification (DE-ÖKO-005) for several food additives. 

Our approach is holistic - We aim to deliver high-performance additives that provide a competitive edge without compromising on health, convenience, or environmental objectives.


In essence, our vision is to lead by example and we aspire to inspire a global shift towards more responsible and sustainable chemical practices, creating a better future for everyone.
