AAK has added China to its list of innovation centres around the world, after opening a new facility in Shanghai.
The centre will allow the global vegetable fat producer to give customers the chance of working closely with the company’s technologists in developing new products and solutions, AAK said.
It will have primary focus on chocolate and confectionery, bakery and dairy solutions, and will also offer training.
“We have a documented, good track record for customer co-development at our innovation centres”, said Torben Friis Lange, AAK’s regional president.
“This is a key element in our strategy and a very efficient way to develop new applications and solutions to possible challenges that our customers experience.”
