Organic oil with care A


mong all segments of the food industry, organic food is the one with the highest growth rates. This trend stretches across Europe, North America and China alike. And it’s not only organic vegetables, meat and dairy products that keep winning market shares; the trend covers organic products all over the shelves. Today, a wide range of organic processed food, snacks and ready-to-eat meals are available. Infant formula and baby food products are also increasingly organic. For all these beautiful organic products, there must be a company that makes them and a company that supplies the ingredients. VFI Oils for Life supplied the first batch of organic oil suitable for baby food in 1995. This was only the beginning: today, VFI is the most experienced and reliable supplier of organic oils for manufacturers in Europe, and is certified organic to EU, US and Chinese standards.


Infant-grade oils for food products When it comes to high quality, VFI has led the way in recent years. The company was the first in the industry to supply oil


Organic food is booming, and it keeps growing. In response to this, production companies need ingredients suppliers to provide the highest quality of organic oils available. That is where VFI Oils for Life, an established supplier of great natural ingredients, comes in.


Close collaboration between field buyers and organic farmers at various stages of the growing process is essential to ensure a safe, high-quality end product.


detected regularly in food everywhere. VFI’s experienced quality management in sourcing raw materials detects and sets aside raw materials for the lowest content of unwanted substances in oils, particularly for special purposes in which extra low tolerance thresholds are applied. VFI’s field buyers work closely with farmers to ensure a safe, organic product, monitoring oil crops at various stages of growth.

virtually free of glycidyl esters and 3-mcpd. This is down to an innovative refining process that allows for ultra-high- quality, infant-grade oil. This quality, virtually free of contaminants, is now available for all other food applications.


Experienced quality management A new challenge for food manufacturers is mineral oil residue. Mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons (MOSH) and mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons (MOAH) are

Containers for food manufacturers As food manufacturers need many different types of oils, and specialised small and medium-sized manufacturers dominate the organic food business, it is a tricky task to provide customers with the right- sized packaging units of oil for their needs. VFI has invested in a fully automatic, integrated filling and cleaning line for intermediate bulk containers (IBCs). Returned cubes are cleaned in-house in a brand-new washing and drying station


with a minimum amount of water and energy required. This enables a more sustainable use of industrial packaging, as the cost for return is greatly reduced.


Industry leading variety The IBC filling station is connected to VFI’s vast in-house tank farm of special quality oils. More than 220 different tanks, big and small, are available. This gives VFI customers a unique number of options to choose from. For sensitive oils, tanks are equipped with a nitrogen- blanketing system that keeps a protective atmosphere in the headspace of the tank. As VFI recommends such systems to customers, its experts are prepared to share their knowledge and consult on implementing a nitrogen system at customers’ sites. It makes a significant difference in the storage quality, and ensures the oil remains fresh.


VFI is the right supplier for organic oils. A leader in technology, it is holding on to a family business culture with customer care on a level rarely seen today. ●
