14.00 - Possibly the worlds most sustainable raw material + How AAK create value from sidestreams

Presented by: Sales Manager Nordics & Baltics, Erik Møller Madsen, AAK.

For more than 60 years, AAK has been sourcing shea kernels in West Africa, buying through intermediaries and directly from approximately 350,000 women with whom AAK has signed individual contracts. The shea kernels are pressed into shea oil in Aarhus, Denmark. The oil is used to replace or improve cocoa butter and is used in cosmetics. The production process produces 190,000 tons of side fractions, which AAK has worked hard to upcycle. Previously, side fractions were a problem. By focusing on selling the side products, AAK has succeeded in increasing the demand for and value of the side products, and today they are a significant part of the business. When customers buy side fractions from AAK, they first save generational raw materials and thereby CO2.
