PATCO Products is a Leading Supplier of Emulsifier Solutions to the Food, Polymer Additive, Personal Care and related Industries


Our mission is to improve the quality of life through solutions we provide to customers. Our history dates back to Curtis J Patterson and the CJ Patterson Company, a research and analytical laboratory founded in the 1940s offering consulting services to independent bakeries. Mr. Patterson was one of the inventors of lactylates used in food applications back in the 1950s. From the early years of providing lactylates to the food industry the business has grown through a series of mergers, acquisitions and organic growth to our current state as the market leader for emulsifiers in North America. Today PATCO Products offers glycerides, lactylates, hydrates, esters, and processing aids to the markets we serve.

Our knowledgeable and experienced team is unmatched in the markets and products we service today. PATCO Products has 2 manufacturing sites in North America to provide the highest level of service to our customers. We are the only North American business solely dedicated to providing the best possible emulsifier solutions to our customers.

Newly established PATCO Products had a successful launch party on Monday, April 2nd.


Alongside our executive team, our company remains dedicated to providing the high level of service our existing customers expect. PATCO Products is proud to be the largest standalone pure-play emulsifiers business in North America.
