AAK Annual Report 2015

Business Area Food Ingredients In the area of Food Ingredients, 2015 was a successful year for AAK with strong growth and a record-high operating profit. Our market-responsiveness, health-oriented solutions and co-development strategy demonstrated our ability to meet customer needs and demands. Innovative solutions, continued customer co-development and consistency in quality, even when supplying on a global scale, have further strengthened our position as the first choice for vegetable oil solutions. Particularly our fast responsiveness to the changes in the food industry has enhanced our customer relationships and competitive edge. Market changes, new legislation and a continuously increasing knowledge on health characteristics of oils and fats, are the drivers for creating renewed value-adding solutions for our customers. Our continued implementation of such changes in co-development with our customers is the most important means for us to generate continuous growth.
