It united confectionery factories in Ukrainian cities of Kiev, Vinnytsia, Mariupol and Kremenchuk, as well as in Klaipėda (Lithuania) and Lipetsk (Russia). The name of the company is created from the last name of its owner, Poroshenko.

"ROSHEN" (depicted in capitalized Latinic only) is the umbrella brand of all of the corporation's products.
