Company information Palsgaard A/S


Palsgaard A/S, the inventor of the modern food emulsifier, was established
in 1919, and still has its headquarters where it all began: in a 600-year old
manor house complete with moat and surrounding park, forests and farmland.
Proud traditions of quality and craftsmanship underlie today's broad product
range, which includes high-performing emulsifiers and stabilizers for margarine,
bakery, dairy, ice cream, soy, confectionery and fine foods as well as functional
agents for polymer applications. Emphasis is placed on effectiveness, innovation
and strict food safety procedures.
Sustainability and the use of pure raw materials have been close to Palsgaard's
heart from the very beginning. This is reflected in our production facilities around
the world, including state-of-the-art factories in Denmark, Malaysia, Netherlands,
Mexico and China, and in the company's commitment to global initiatives such as
RSPO-certified sustainable palm oil.

An important cornerstone in Palsgaard's business is our well-equipped Application
Centers in Singapore, China, USA, Mexico, and Denmark (as well as one under
construction in Dubai). The centers cover all the major food application areas, offering
a uniquely personal service where specific needs and preferences - and the realities
of local markets are in focus. Typically, a Palsgaard application center comprises
a fully equipped industrial facility where realistic industrial pilot tests can be carried out.
This unique setup facilitates proper up-scaling and vastly increases the likelihood of
success in the marketplace.

Already in 1908, long before "Corporate Social Responsibility" was conceptualized;
Palsgaard's founder Einar Viggo Schou emphasized the importance of acting
responsibly and caringly towards the company's employees and families - and
the importance of extending this responsibility to society. His principles have
meant that Palsgaard has worked with CSR as a core activity for more than a century.
We are active in over 100 countries, bringing with us a strong sense of responsibility
to act in ways that benefit local and global environments and which are in line with our
founding principles. We've set an overall target of becoming CO2-neutral by 2020.
That's an ambitious target for a company with energy-intensive production processes,
but it's just another of the ways in which we care for our world.

Palsgaard has served the global food processing industry for decades and our
continued ability to serve our customers is ensured by the company's status as a
self-owning foundation with significant financial assets, which allows the company
to take a long-term view with focus on experience, credibility and thorough knowhow
of customers' processes and challenges.
