Our consolidated experience means we can define the right fat content for the specific needs of each application in which it will be used, achieving a unique level of specialisation and customisation. Through hydrogenation, inter-esterification and fractionation processes, we are able to create a wealth of tailor-made products or formulations, working side by side with our customers to create innovative solutions. The large production capacity and storage of the plant - equipped with a series of 150,000 tonne tanks for liquid oils and fats - means we can promptly and flexibly meet all our customers’ demands, including those outside the EU. All the formulations containing palm oil and derivatives are RSPO® certified.
