Palsgaard Invests in New Factory in Asia

Palsgaard already has a fully equipped application centre in Singapore with pilot equipment within dairy, ice cream, bakery and soya milk products – the new production facility makes it all complete.


Danish food ingredients supplier Palsgaard is now constructing a large state of the art emulsifier factory in Asia. The yearly capacity of the plant is in excess of 20.000 MT.


“Preliminary investigations and negotiations are now at such an advanced stage that we feel comfortable to announce our plans”, explains Chairman Mr. Birger Brix.


The whole Asian region has been a major growth area for Palsgaard over the last years. “In order to satisfy the increasing needs and demands of our customers for high quality emulsifiers and stabilisers produced in the Asian region, this is a natural move forward in Palsgaard’s strategic development plans”, explains Mr. Brix.


The factory will be located in Singapore or neighbour state Johor, Malaysia, depending on final investigation.

The new factory is designed according to the latest and most modern standards in terms of production technology, energy consumption and environmental influence. The investment is budgeted for 30 million USD, and will start producing in the second half of 2012.


Palsgaard is a specialist in manufacturing emulsifiers, stabilizers and other specialized ingredients for application in the bakery, dairy, chocolate, ice cream, margarine and fine food sectors. With pilot plants within these areas, Palsgaard goes beyond simply supplying ingredients by offering comprehensive customer support, making the step between initial ideas and production as small as possible.


The company manufactures its products according to HACCP principles and is certified as a Clean and Safe company, in addition to holding an ISO 9001 certificate. This is expected to be upgraded to an ISO 22000 in February 2011.


Palsgaard focuses on Corporate Social Responsibility and is a member of the RSPO, GreenPalm and Sedex.


In 2009 the company won the “Wise m2” award initiated by Danish building society Real Kredit Danmark for its activities related to CO2 reductions. In 2010, Grupo Bimbo named Palsgaard  “Supplier of the Year”, for its role in helping the world’s largest bakery manufacturer develop new products in a safe and socially responsible way.
