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 specific needs and requirements from 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. Since 2013, we have introduced a new product line:
