Peter Greven – Your partner for food additives

Every day we encounter stearates and other oleochemical additives - without knowing it. They are important additives in the food, feed, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.
The food industry has special requirements for the additives used. Our brand LIGAFOOD® includes products that are specifically geared towards the requirements of the food industry.

Our LIGAFOOD® products

  • Are manufactured in accordance with HACCP food safety standards,
  • Meet the FDA guidelines for direct food contact (GRAS),
  • Conform to the latest Food Chemical Codex (FCC),
  • Are produced on the basis of purely vegetable raw materials,
  • Are free from impurities (e.g., dioxins, pesticides and heavy metals).

In addition, we introduced a management System for Food Safety in 2010, which was awarded the FSSC 22000 (ISO 22000) certificate.

The sustainability theme plays a central role in the food industry, especially in relation to palm oil-based products. Peter Greven Nederland C.V. is members of the RSPO (Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil) and SCCS certified. Therefore we offer two RSPO certified product lines:

LIGAFOOD MB metallic soaps based on RSPO Mass Balance (MB) certified fatty acids. For detailed information, please see RSPO.

LIGAFOOD SG metallic soaps based on RSPO Segregated (SG) certified fatty acids. For detailed information, please see RSPO.

Our additives are, for example, used in the production of the following foods:

  • Sweets/Candies
  • Chewing gum
  • Pastries
  • Yeast
  • Baking powder
  • Spices
