Bunge Loders Croklaan expands organic portfolio

As consumers increasingly demand more sustainable products, food brands are endeavouring to expand their range of organic produce. According to Mintel, last year in Europe one in five new food products were organic, compared to one in eight globally. Furthermore, as part of the Green Deal “Farm to Fork” strategy, the European Commission has set a target of having 25% of all farmland devoted to organic agriculture by 2030.

Director of Product Management EMEA for Bunge Loders Croklaan, Marcel Henneman said, “Food companies increasingly view ‘organic’ as an expression of transparency and being closer to nature — messages that strongly resonate among the growing community of conscious consumers”.

“To achieve an ‘organic’ label status, food manufacturers are required not only to ensure the ingredients in their products are sourced organically, but also that the manufacturing processes employed are certified organic”.

“We invite brands to tap into our long-standing knowledge and experience in lipid processing,” says Feike Swennenhuis, Marketing Director Europe for Bunge Loders Croklaan.

“Whether formulating from scratch or reformulating traditional products, we can tailor any kind of fat solution to meet our customer’s specific organic aspirations and our approach is centered around our ‘let’s create together’ principle. We deliver organic quality for both primary lipid sources and more specialty lipids, such as lecithins and fat formulations for infant nutrition, confectionery, bakery, culinary and plant-based. We will continue to extend the options of customized organic solutions to a comprehensive range of food applications.”
