AAK refines vegetable oils for specialised products which meet our customers' high requirements. In partnership with its customers, AAK develops leading global positions with a high level of profitability.
AAK should be the first choice for customers whose production relies on high value-adding vegetable oils. 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.
Raw materials are obtained from areas such as Asia and West Africa. AAK is committed to sustainable development and is a founder of RSPO, 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 without ruthless exploitation.
AAK's products originate in the plant kingdom and are renewable. This means that they have minimum impact on the environment.
AAK is organised in three business areas; Food Ingredients, Chocolate & Confectionery Fats and Technical Products & Feed. The cosmetics unit, which is part of Chocolate & Confectionery Fats, is a rapidly-growing operation.
Production facilities are located in Belgium, Colombia, Denmark, Mexico, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Sweden, Uruguay and the USA.
