Established more than 100 years ago, the British and Irish Calcium Carbonates Federation (BICCF) represents UK and Ireland chalk, limestone, marble, dolomite and precipitated calcium carbonate producers.

About BICCF image

We exist to promote the value and versatility of calcium carbonates, as well as represent the interests of producers and encourage the development of the UK and Irish calcium carbonate industry.

Collectively, BICCF members provide around 1,000 industry jobs, and remain committed to promoting the benefits of calcium carbonate to industrial users and consumers. 

The BICCF currently has 10 members, who collectively represent more than 95% of the total industry in the UK and Ireland. The federation provides a forum for members to come together to discuss and debate issues of mutual interest, as well as set safety, environmental and technical standards - helping to enhance the industry.

The BICCF is affiliated to the Mineral Products Association in the UK, and the Calcium Carbonate Association and Industrial Minerals Association in Europe.
