Company description

Everything we do is about Making Better Happen™.
AAK specializes in plant-based oils that are the value-adding ingredients in many of the products people love to consume. We make them better tasting, healthier, and more sustainable. We enhance the sensory experience – by giving the silkier mouthfeel in premium chocolate, the juicier texture in a plant-based burger, and the puffier appearance in a lower-fat pastry. We can also optimize their production by substituting existing ingredients with plant-based equivalents to give better process efficiency. AAK’s value-adding solutions enable our customers to be successful in a better way.

At the heart of AAK’s offer is Customer Co-Development, combining our desire to understand what better means for each customer, with the unique flexibility of our production assets, and a deep knowledge of many products and industries. 

AAK has been Making Better Happen™ for more than 150 years.
