Whether you’re looking to improve quality, enhance the health or sustainable image of your brands, cut costs or get more from your product line, the DuPont™ Danisco® range of emulsifiers can help.
Our emulsifiers perform many essential functions in your food products, such as stabilising emulsions, securing the right mouthfeel and product appearance, overcoming raw material variations and extending shelf life.
They are used in a wide range of food industry application areas from bakery, confectionery, dairy & frozen desserts to meal solutions, snacks and oils & fats.
Discover how our range can contribute to your sustainability goals throughout the whole value chain, while meeting the consumers’ expectations of healthy, affordable and sustainable food.
The growing population, rising affluence and urbanization lead to increasing global food demand while diets transition towards higher consumption of meat, fruits and vegetables. This evolution adds pressure on natural resources while consumers are becoming more conscious about making responsible food choices.
Our emulsifiers are mainly sourced from vegetable oils, such as palm, soybean, rapeseed, sunflower, castor and coconut oil. DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences is building transparent, responsible supply chains for all our sourced materials, based on strong relationships with our suppliers. We are doing so to reduce the environmental footprint in our supply chains, protect human rights, and improve the livelihoods of the communities we source from. This will catalyse long term value for DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences, suppliers we work with, and specific regions.
DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences has been a member of SEDEX since 2008 and our we view our Suppliers as partners in our success as a company. Our Supplier Code of Conduct was developed to clearly outline our expectations of suppliers.
Oil palm trees grow best in the tropics. Indonesia and Malaysia make up over 85% of global supply. Plantations are spreading across Asia, Africa and Latin America as global demand for palm oil is increasing rapidly.
Palm oil is a versatile and widely used oil, mainly in food products, detergents, cosmetics and, to a small extent, biofuel. It is the crop with the highest yield per m2, up to 5 - 8 times more efficient oil yields than substituting crops like soy, rapeseed or sunflower. Palm oil production is also associated with environmental and social risks such as deforestation and human right issues.
DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences is a pioneer in offering environment-friendly and socially-responsible sourced palm based ingredients. We have been a member of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) since its founding in 2004, or more than 15 years now. The RSPO initiative aims to transform markets to make sustainable palm oil the norm, protecting human rights, forest & biodiversity, while promoting good governance & transparency.
In 2017 we made the switch to 100% certified* sustainable palm oil and palm oil derivatives globally.
* A combination of physical supply chain and B&C-certificates.
Our emulsifiers are produced globally across 5 production sites, close to the end markets. We foster a culture of continuous improvement focused on efficiency and environmental performance. By actively managing our resource utilisation (energy, water, electricity, nitrogen) we continuously look at how we can reduce our footprint.
All N&B emulsifier manufacturing sites are ISO 14001 certified. Moreover, as of 2017 they are SEDEX registered and have completed four pillar sustainability audits, so called SMETA audits. The SMETA audits touch upon topics related to Labor practices, Health and Safety, Business Ethics and Environmental management. We share the audit results with customers through our SEDEX account.
Grindsted CO2 neutral
In 2017 we strengthened the sustainable footprint of our manufacturing plant in Grindsted (DK), which became virtually carbon dioxide neutral. This is achieved by replacing coal with biomass as an energy source and by feeding the local district heating system with waste heat, saving more than 64,000 tons CO2e annually equal to removing 27,000 average Danish cars from the road for a year.
