Sustainable product development is an integral part of our entire innovation and new product development lifecycle. And it all starts with the inclusion of sustainability principles and goals in Palsgaard's strategic business plan.
Sustainable product development
When our development team makes decisions about the properties of a new product, its production process and the raw materials to be incorporated, the team considers potential environmental impacts. All development projects are managed and documented through our quality assurance system to ensure efficient, targeted and sustainable development that takes into account all relevant issues. The use of sustainable raw materials is prioritised, as evidenced by our deep commitment to the RSPO and EPOA sustainable palm oil initiatives.
We continuously seek to adapt our product range to match the latest knowledge about the impact of food products on consumer health and well-being. One of our latest introductions is the development of a gluten-free, sugar-free without trans fats or hydrogenated oil recipe of the traditional rich chocolate cake, Devil’s Food Cake.
The ISO/FSSC 22000 certification of Palsgaard's management system for food safety includes an extensive procedure for systematically assessing food safety issues for new raw materials. This ensures that we proactively evaluate risks and document the safety of future products. Our production facilities in Denmark, Mexico, the Netherlands and Malaysia are all ISO/FSSC 22000 certified.
