Alicorp is the largest Peruvian consumer goods company, with operations in South, Central and North America.

History[edit]

The company now known as Alicorp was started in 1956 as Industrias Anderson, Clayton & Co. as an oil and soap manufacturer in the port of Callao, Peru. In 1971, the Peruvian conglomerate Grupo Romero acquired Anderson, Clayton & Co. and renamed it Compañia Industrial Peru Pacifico S.A. (CIPPSA).
The company survived during the years of military rule in Peru and during the 1990s embarked on several acquisitions. In 1993, it absorbed Calixto Romero S.A. and Compañia Oleaginosa Pisco S.A. which were also owned by Grupo Romero. In 1995, it acquired La Fabril S.A., the largest food manufacturer in Peru from Grupo Bunge y Born from Argentina. CIPPSA changed it name to Consorcio de Alimentos Fabril Pacifico S.A. (CFP) in 1995. CFP merged with Nicolini Hermanos S.A. and Compañia Molinera del Peru S.A. in 1996 and changed its name to Alicorp in 1997.
