Assukar S.A., is a proudly Costa Rican company, specialized in the production of totally natural and organic sugarcane derivatives.
The history of our company begins more than a century ago, when the small nation of Costa Rica began to be built as a country by the hand of agriculture.
In 1850, Don Gaspar Ortuño, a Spanish immigrant, established himself in the country as a pioneer of major projects, including the founding of the Bank of Costa Rica, after fully dedicating himself to the cultivation of coffee. This crop boosted the industrial development of the newly founded nation, both structurally, economically and politically.
The Ortuño family continued the family business and the coffee tradition, under the tutelage of Don Gaspar's son, Manuel Ortuño. In 1963 the family moved operations from San José to Turrialba in the Caribbean area of the country.
In these new lands obtained for the cultivation of coffee, sugarcane and macadamia, there was a small sugar mill, this is being used for the production of: “Tapas de Dulce”, also known in other countries such as: Panela or Piloncillo, this being the main product of that period.
As the years went by, the family decided to start marketing new products within them the whole sugar cane. In 1986 one of the family members who visited the city of New York, visits a natural products store and discovers the benefits of integral products. This idea was transmitted to the family that decides to take a turn in the production of the company.
