Who we are

Innovative solutions for your ingredient and chemical needs

We are a company dedicated to providing integral solutions to industries in general, through high quality raw materials, service and ingredients.

Exceeding customer expectations is the essence of Divsa. We achieve this by means of experience, service, research and development, through relationships that have been cultivated for almost twenty years throughout Central America and the Caribbean.

With its inception in 1996, Divsa began consolidating early representations of foreign companies at administrative offices established in Guatemala. It crossed borders in 2002, expanding to Honduras and Costa Rica, then further extended to El Salvador in 2003, moving into the Caribbean in 2006 when it opened operations in Dominican Republic, with Trinidad and Tobago to follow in 2009.

Today, the trajectory of corporate growth continues in various industries by means of new brands, representations and expansion of product lines.
