Welcome to the World of Sethness-Roquette
Born in 2004 from a joint-venture between two specialists in their respective sectors, Sethness-Roquette has grown up and become a leader in the Caramel Colour market.
Sethness Products Company, one of the largest Caramel Colour manufacturers in the world. Since 1880, their commitment to producing the highest quality Caramel Colour has made Sethness a worldwide leader in the industry.
Roquette Frères, the second largest carbohydrates manufacturer in Europe and one of the world's most advanced producers of starch and starch derivatives.
The complementary strengths of these two well-known family-run companies offer unique advantages to our Caramel Colour customers.
Backed by these two long-established companies that represent more than 200 years of experience, Sethness-Roquette has the facilities, people and expertise to meet the growing demand in Europe and around the world.
Our new state-of-the-art production plant is based in Merville, in Northern France, located near Roquette's largest carbohydrate factory. It is the most modern and best equipped Caramel Colour plant in the world.
Sethness-Roquette produces a wide range of Caramel Colour and Burnt Sugars, and is dedicated to offering the most consistent and highest quality Caramel Colour along with outstanding customer service. Our goal is to customize products to meet the demands of all customers.
Our Motto: to deliver the quality, consistency, versatility and service that our customers deserve.

Quality is found throughout every aspect of Sethness-Roquette.
In the plant, the raw materials used in the production of our Caramel Colours are all subject to strict specifications to ensure purity. Our plant is equipped with advanced control systems including state-of-the-art monitoring equipment. All equipment is operated by our well-trained, expert staff.
In our Quality Control laboratory, our processes ensure that customers obtain the precise Caramel Colour for their unique product application. These same processes make it possible for us to guarantee that our Caramel Colour meets all World Health Organization and EU Authority requirements.
In the office, our commitment to quality is the driving force behind our customer support. From production through to delivery, we are dedicated to providing our customers with only the best products and service.
Controls to Create Total Customer Confidence in our Caramel Colour
Consistency — the reproducibility of product characteristics with minimal variations — is the key to success in a market driven by ever-higher consumer expectations and ever-tighter specifications. Such consistency is even more important when it comes to something as critical to consumer appeal as the colour of a beverage or food product. That's why, at Sethness-Roquette, consistency is at the core of what we do.
Our customers — producers of some of the world's best-known beverage and food brands — need to have complete confidence in our ability to provide the right colour every time. They also need to know that their orders will always reach them on time, correctly packaged and in precisely the condition promised.
At Sethness-Roquette, we conduct tests to make sure every batch of Caramel Colour meets exacting standards. Our staff works diligently so that our customers receive their colour when and how they need it.
Consistency is not only measured by the reliability of our plant and process controls, but by our raw materials, as well. We only work with suppliers that conform to the same high standards-giving our customers the confidence to know that our Caramel Colours are GMO-free and have comprehensive, certified traceability.
The Freedom of Caramel Colour
Sethness-Roquette Caramel Colour is highly versatile. For one, Caramel Colour can be used for a broad range of colour requirements — everything from golden yellow to the darkest browns.
Additionally, our Caramel Colour can be tailored precisely to conditions in your food products since it works well in a wide variety of chemical and physical environments. For example, we have Caramel Colours that function well in various alcohol or salt environments and across pH levels from 2-10. Caramel Colour can also provide an emulsifying effect-important when oils are present in liquids such as soft drinks.
Sethness-Roquette Caramel Colour can be used in a seemingly unlimited number of beverages and foods, from carbonated drinks, to soups, to sauces and marinades to frozen foods.
Our powdered Caramel Colours provide an effective, practical colouring for all types of dry-packed foods such as powdered soups, gravy granules, stock cubes and baked goods. Caramel Colour also offers excellent microbiological stability, rendering it easy to handle and store. Under the right conditions, most of our Caramel Colours may be stored for a minimum of two years.
Versatility is also reflected in the economics. Not only is Sethness-Roquette Caramel Colour a low-cost colour option, but generally, only a small amount is needed to achieve the desired result. These two factors add up to a cost-effective and versatile colour solution.
