Palsgaard installs margarine pilot plant at facilities in Singapore.
Emulsifier specialist Palsgaard is pleased to announce that the
company is in the process of installing a margarine pilot plant at
its facilities in Singapore.
Haydee Carlos, Managing Director of Palsgaard Asia-Pacific,
explains: "With this new pilot plant we will be able to offer
the same service to margarine manufactures in Asia as we are
currently doing in Europe and the Americas and help them test and
develop innovative margarine and shortening products e.g. a low-fat
puff pastry margarine with only 35% fat or low-fat spreads with
only 10% fat or high-ratio shortenings."
The FH Scandinox
manufactured plant is literally a well equipped "mini factory" with
2 tube chillers and 2 pin machines and has a capacity of 60 kg of
margarine per hour. The set-up of the plant makes it possible for
Palsgaard's application technologists to simulate the customer's
own production equipment - regardless of what type of margarine the
manufacturer is producing, be it liquid or brick margarine for
household use or professional margarines.
With the pilot plant and Palsgaard's dedicated emulsifiers the
company will be able to help customers create new recipes for
various types of margarine, which meets customer demands and even
tailor them to the customer's own setup. Haydee Carlos further
explains: "Making a successful margarine depends not only on
the qualities of the emulsifier and the raw materials but equally
on the production process and the order in which the ingredients
are added. This is why it's so important for us to have the pilot
plant - this way we can fully understand our customer's setup and
provide him with the best possible advice on how to optimize his
In addition to the new margarine pilot plant Palsgaard Singapore
is already home to a well equipped bakery application lab which
includes an electric dough roller machine for puff pastry which
allows Palsgaard to carefully test the effect of its margarine
emulsifiers in their final application, making sure that the
margarine manufacturer will have satisfied customers.
The margarine pilot plant is currently being installed and will
be ready to receive customers in March.
