PHO Removal Courses Provide Comprehensive Education to the Industry

In March 2015, IOI Loders Croklaan hosted the first in a series of PHO Removal 201 courses in the Creative Studio. PHO Removal remains the region’s largest opportunity for growth as we await the FDA’s decision regarding the GRAS status of Partially Hydrogenated Oils (PHOs). The hands-on, 2-day course is designed to educate the industry about the seamless removal of PHOs. This gives participants the opportunity to learn about the various options available, including the versatility of palm, with additional focus on the impact of trans-fat on nutrition and labeling.

Fifteen existing and prospective customers attended the course from several companies specializing in various applications. The response and feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Based on the success of the first course IOI Loders Croklaan plans to host more courses May 20-21 and August 26-27, October 1st and December 10th. The goal is maxmum customer interaction and growth of the project pipeline with the result of increased sales. In addition, by providing comprehensive education to the industry, IOI Loders Croklaan’s reputation as the Fats & Oils industry leader is strengthened.
