VIMAL PPCE is one of Ukraine´s largest and modern potato starch and derivatives manufacturers. We are starch experts since 1992.
The story has started in the a very strenuous times, what a hyperinflation process had taken place in Ukraine. Right at that very moment, the founder of VIMAL PPCE, Mr. Viktor Lazar has made a risky decision to borrow a loan for buying a new equipment for the potato processing. The equipment was bought in Russia, in Starch and Derivatives Institute of Moscow. The equipment was installed in the rented facilities from the vegetable warehouse and its capacity was about 5 tonnes of potato starch per day.
"Its better to loose money than the reputation" - Viktor Lazar, founder of VIMAL PPCE.
As an comperable exapmle, today we able to produce up to 45 tonnes of starch per day, and morever we do this on the same facilities but with much more efificient processing technology. Sagnificant part and role in the company foundation has taken the brothers of Viktor Lazar - Mykola and Anatoliy Lazars, who gave reliable support since the very beginning in any situation and time of the day.
In Summer 1994 potato starch manufacturing line was constructed. The startup of potato starch manufacturing took place in September 1994.
