speciality oils and fats; vegetable products - wet



AAK refines vegetable oils for specialised products which meet customers' high requirements. In partnership with its customers.

AAK are always on the look out for partners whose production relies on high value-added vegetable oils. The company says that this is what has made AAK the world's leading producer of speciality vegetable fats. The products are used as substitutes for dairy fat and cocoa butter, as transfree solutions for fillings for chocolate and confectionery products, as well as by the cosmetics industry.

The company’s raw materials are obtained from areas such as Asia and West Africa. AAK is committed to sustainable development and is one of the prime movers behind RSPO, the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil, and GreenPalm Ltd. Through these initiatives, AAK has contributed to the natural extraction of palm oil through natural agricultral development.

AAK's products originate in the plant kingdom and are renewable. This means that they achieve a minimal impact on the environment. AAK's products are used, for example, as lubricants for forestry machinery. The waste products discharged by the machinery to the eco-system during the production process have no harmful impact on the environment.

AAK is organised into three business areas: Chocolate & Confectionery Fats, Food Ingredients and Technical Products & Feed. The cosmetics unit, which is part of Chocolate & Confectionery Fats, is a rapidly-growing operation.

 Production facilities are located in Denmark, Mexico, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Sweden, Uruguay and the USA.
