Oils & Fats International Issue | OFI June 2017

Subscribe and don't miss an issue.

Our June 2017 issue focuses on bleaching earths, which are essential for the refining of edible oils but pose a disposal and environmental problem. Two features look at possible uses for spent bleaching earths, including as an animal feed ingredient. We also provide a round-up of some of the latest news and developments related to bleaching earth suppliers.

In a feature on margarines and spreads, we examine the use and evolution of emulsifiers in margarine production.

The issue takes a look at why glass is the preferred packaging medium for high oil/fat content foods and what can be done to deal with the problems associated with tamper evident seals in glass packaging.

And we look at palm oil production in West Africa and feature an exclusive profile on DekelOil, a UK-headquartered company focusing on palm oil operations in Côte d’Ivoire.

Our June issue includes our annual listing of plant, equipment and technology suppliers and a wall chart of their activities.

The issue also features our regular usual mix of news, event listings and statistics.
A bonus distribution of this issue will be made at the 14th Oleochem Outlook conference in, Nanjing, China on 12-13 July 2017.
