AAK inaugurates new Singapore centre

AAK has inaugurated its new Customer Innovation Center in Singapore to further strengthen its capabilities and customer co-development approach in the Southeast Asian market. The company has similar centres across the world in which it works closely with customers to develop value-adding vegetable oil solutions.

“This state-of-the-art center will be focused on applications within Chocolate & Confectionery Fats, Bakery, Ice cream and Dairy, and Special Nutrition”, said Torben Friis Lange, President Asia. “With this investment, we are dedicated to support our existing regional customers and give them access to AAK’s global solutions as well as build new customer relations to further support our growth in Southeast Asia.”

The centre is located at Biopolis, an integrated R&D complex that houses research laboratories of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies as well as public sector research institutes. At the grand opening, AAK welcomed regional customers, representatives from the Ministry of Trade and Industry in Singapore, as well as Sweden’s ambassador to Singapore.

“Southeast Asia is one of the fastest-growing economies on the continent and the demand for speciality and semi-speciality edible oils is expected to grow strongly in the region”, said Lange.
