Palsgaard is a world leader in plant-based emulsifiers and polymer additives for the global food, packaging and plastics industries. Since its founder Einar Viggo Schou invented the modern plant-based food emulsifier in 1917, the company has provided advanced industry know-how and innovation to an increasingly diversified customer base. From application centres around the world, Palsgaard’s experienced technologists support brand owners and manufacturers in optimising their sustainability by the use of natural, renewable ingredients and additives to mitigate their carbon footprint.
Palsgaard helps manufacturers grow and protect their brands by meeting consumer and regulatory demands for greater responsibility. The company is currently the world’s only commercial source of fully sustainable emulsifiers and additives based on RSPO SG-certified palm oil as well as rapeseed, sunflower, and other vegetable oils. All products are non-GMO, have full EU and FDA food contact approvals, and also meet halal and kosher requirements.
The company’s food emulsifiers and emulsifier/stabiliser systems have a long history of adding to the quality and shelf-life of bakery, confectionery, condiments, dairy, ice cream, and margarine products. At the same time, they can significantly improve the taste, mouthfeel and texture while using fewer resources. Palsgaard’s plant-based polymer additives, including anti-fog and anti-static formulations for food and other packaging, build on this expertise and are rapidly emerging as highly effective and sustainable alternatives to conventional petrol-based additives.
Palsgaard, with headquarters in Juelsminde, Denmark, is owned by the Schou Foundation and has 653 employees across 17 countries. The company operates plants, sales offices and warehouses across four continents. All of their six production sites in Denmark, the Netherlands, Mexico, Brazil, China and Malaysia are carbon-neutral.
