Swedish vegetable oils and fats producer Karlshamns has announced the opening of a new Norwegian sales office in Oslo.
“Karlshamns’ focus on the Norwegian market is partly prompted by the current restructuring of the European vegetable oil industry, in the aftermath of which Denofa closed down its refinery in Fredriksstad in Norway,” it said. The new sales office will serve the Norwegian market, with deliveries direct from the plant in Karlshamn, Sweden.
“We offer a complete range of oils and fats, a range that thus also comprises our high value-added speciality fats,” said Håkan Christensson, president of business sector food ingredients. “Our unique range of trans-free products, for example, is in great demand within the Norwegian food industry. With focus on technical solutions, efficient logistics and first-rate commercial service, we are now committing ourselves to consolidating our market position in Norway even further.”
