AAK opened a new Plant-based Innovation Center of Excellence in Zaandijk, outside Amsterdam, in the presence of customers, investors, and local officials, who also took a guided tour of the premises. The three story facility features an application laboratory, co-development workspaces, a culinary kitchen, and a sensory facility.
“As the global demand for food is expected to increase by 70% by 2050 and fat is an essential food ingredient, there is no doubt that AAK as Multi-oil Ingredient House plays a vital role in accelerating sustainable food production,” the company says.
“Our customers require unique solutions to stay competitive. Together, we will speed up the paradigm shift to sustainable foods with good taste in focus”, says Niall Sands, President, Commercial Development and Innovation, AAK.
