AAK: Non-Hydro Solutions
AAK’s new website helps product developers with their formulations challenges
AAK, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high value-adding specialty vegetable fats and oils, has launched a new website, www.BetterwithAAK.com.
The website helps product developers and it showcases some of AAK’s unique co-development solutions. This co-development process allows AAK to work hand-in-hand with industry partners to develop new solutions for some of today’s toughest formulation challenges.
“We wanted to develop a resource for manufacturers that would highlight our co-development capabilities and provide real-world examples of the range of bakery and confectionery formulation challenges we have overcome,” says Terry Thomas, president, AAK USA Inc. “Our co-development process allows us to work hand-in-hand in the lab to ensure that we can meet and exceed desired products’ attributes and ensure a finished product that consumers will love.”
Thomas adds, “Our new website is just one phase of AAK’s co-development evolution. Construction is almost complete on our state-of-the-art customer innovation center, which is scheduled to open this fall. We are truly thrilled to be on the cusp of this milestone. Soon we will open the doors of this new facility and be able to offer our co-development solutions to even more processors as a tool that can benefit their formulation work as well.”
BetterwithAAK.com highlights AAK’s selection of non-hydro, no trans, PHO-free brands which are uniquely targeted to specific applications and challenges. The site showcases a multitude of useful and timely solutions that allow manufacturers to continue to create great tasting quality foods with consumer-friendly labels for the following industries:
