Our successful international trading business was founded in 1929. Thanks to our expertise, quality consciousness and reliability, we have an excellent reputation. Our suppliers include global conglomerates and niche players.

Our customers are active in the food and chemicals industry, the pharmaceutical and cosmetics sectors as well as feed manufacturing.

We are part of Sugro Holding, which also owns other trading companies.


SUGRO emerged from the international trading company Suter & Co., which was founded in the USA before the outbreak of World War I.

After the turbulence caused by the stock market crash of 1929, SUGRO Switzerland underwent a management buyout and was subsequently entered into the commercial register on 29 November of the same year.

Initially, the company focussed on trading in chemicals and later broadened its range to include raw materials and intermediate products for the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries as well as feed producers.

SUGRO is headquartered at "Pfeffingerhof" in Sevogelstrasse 21 in Basel since 1944.
