2018 has been one of our best years ever and we have
now had continuous growth since 2015. Both the Feed
business and our crusher have seen an increase in
operating profit. We also managed to sell out the extra
capacity which was created for ExPro®.
AAK supplies ExPro®, a rapeseed meal, which is
exposed to a special heat treatment process to improve
the protein quality for ruminants. ExPro® is a perfect
soybean meal replacer. We also supply by-pass fats,
which are used in dairy cattle feeds to increase milk
yield, as well as simple liquid fats.
With farms increasingly producing their own feeds,
demand is turning to more concentrated feed products.
These require smaller volumes of higher quality,
containing more protein and more energy. In addition,
we are seeing more customers turning to non-GMO
We have developed a new by-pass fat based on rapeseed
and shea fatty acids for the Norwegian market.
We aim to grow with ExPro® in non-GMO feeds and
with by-pass fats. The most interesting opportunities are
in Sweden’s neighboring countries where our market
share is low. We will also reach out to other regions
in AAK to investigate possibilities for increased cooperation
in order to help introduce new products to our
portfolio, for example equine nutrition.
