Karlshamns was one of the leading suppliers of specialty fat to the confectionary industry-a market area that is constantly developing and where the requirements for rapid product adaptation are considerable. The Group is organised into three business areas – Oils & Fats, Technical Products and Feed Materials. All three base their operations on exploiting the company’s knowledge of the fat molecule. AAK, formerly AarhusKarlshamn, is a Swedish-Danish company and producer of value-adding vegetable oils and fats. The company’s products are used in a wide variety of applications in the food, confectionery, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, chemical and animal feed industries. The company was founded in 2005 through the merger of Karlshamns AB and Aarhus United A/S.
AAK has more than 140 years of experience of innovating and customizing solutions based on vegetable oils and fats. In close collaboration with our customers, we use our expertise to create added value across the food, confectionery, and cosmetics industries. AAK should be the first choice for customers whose production relies on value-adding vegetable oil solutions. This is what has made AAK the world’s leading producer of speciality and semi-speciality vegetable oils and fats.
