Experts in specialized fats and oils
AarhusKarlshamn, or AAK as they’re most commonly referred to, is a Swedish-Danish specialty oils and fats company that operates in the food and beverage industry. They provide solutions and ingredients to various sectors, including bakery, confectionery, dairy, and more. AAK specializes in the development and production of innovative fats and oils, with a focus on sustainability and responsible sourcing.

Over 130 years of experience
AAK was born out of a merger between a Danish and a Swedish company called Aarhus united (the latter was in turn a conglomerate of different producers of specialty fats) and Karlshamn AB. The merger was completed in 2005 and the company decided to place their headquarters in Malmö on the southern tip of Sweden, just a short drive or train ride away from the Danish capital. The company jointly has a history spanning back to the late 1800’s and still has the same focus today: producing the best specialty fats and oils for their customers.
