Improvement Focused

We’re passionate about the work we do. And so are our employees. Through a performance-driven culture, we strive for continuous improvement and operational excellence – driving profitability, customer satisfaction and financial stability. It’s not just about the organisation and the customer, though. We reward our employees for the work they put in and the dedication they show, creating a working environment that’s built on mutual respect.

Initiative

We have one goal; to be the first choice for value-adding vegetable oil solutions. Our co-development approach gives our employees the opportunity to make a genuine impact, taking responsibility for their actions, projects and people. For us it allows us to rapidly change or adapt in response to changes in the market, and help the Company to react successfully to the emergence of new competitors and the development of new industry changing technologies.

Innovation

Our pioneering spirit and passion for science and technology not only help us deliver innovative new products and services; they allow us to create new ways of working too. We stand out against our competitors because we encourage our employees to take risks, challenge the status quo and come up with new and value-added ways of doing things. It’s this passion for the work we do that our customers respect.

Teamwork

We are committed to working together. To reach our business goals, we depend on our ability to communicate clearly, work together and share our knowledge and expertise. As well as leveraging the strength of our multinational organisation, we also celebrate and draw on the diversity of our people. We believe there is just as much strength in cultural differences as there is in numbers.

Sense of Urgency

Our culture is also one driven by a sense of urgency; where quality products and services are emphasised every bit as much as profitability and stability.  We hold ourselves to the highest standards and, as a result, each of our employees takes pride in their work and holds themselves accountable for their actions and performance. In this way we own all our successes and build valued relationships.

Our Culture

AAK is an ambitious and growing business – a leader in our field.

What sets us apart, however, is our culture. We think of our people as family members and we treat them as such; taking a warm and caring approach to everything from employee safety to career development. We respect our people and we hold ourselves accountable for our actions and our performances. In this way we own all our successes and build valued relationships throughout our business and beyond.

Collaboration is also something we place a lot of emphasis on. We work together and communicate clearly across our multinational operations. Just as importantly, we listen to and draw strength from our diverse workforce, and combine a willingness to consider things differently with the flexibility to embrace change.

All of our people share the same pioneering spirit and passion for improving the everyday lives of our communities. To do that, we explore the unknown and challenge conventions. We take the risks that need taking and invest in technology and people in order to stay at the forefront of our industry.

Our culture is also one that is driven by performance – where quality products and services are emphasised every bit as much as profitability and stability. We hold ourselves to the highest standards and, as a result, each family member can take pride in their work and on making a genuine impact, both to the business and to the wider world. 

 

Diversity

We believe that the diversity of our multinational organisation lends us strength. Not only can local market knowledge inform our global operations, but the diverse and varied backgrounds of our people can bring about innovative ways of thinking, spark new ideas and make our business more effective.

We value and respect the differences of every single family member and are committed to recruiting and developing the very best talent. We actively promote equality of opportunity throughout our business. These principles of fairness inform everything we do and, as a result, employees can expect to be recognised and rewarded based on their individual talents and contribution.
