Innovation, sustainability, and going the extra mile are key strengths and have been a hallmark of IOI Loders Croklaan for generations. Our work began in the 1800s with two distinct companies: the Dutch Crok & Laan and the British Loders & Nucoline, both successful in vegetable oils and fats. Unilever acquired Crok & Laan in 1970 and merged it with its own subsidiary Loders & Nucoline, and Loders Croklaan was established. The company was sold in 2002 to the Malaysian IOI Group, active in palm oil plantations, oleo chemicals, real estate development, and downstream manufacturing.

Today, IOI Loders Croklaan focuses on palm oil lipid solutions and is renowned for technological breakthroughs. With state-of-the-art various processes such as fractionation, interesterification, emulsification, IOI Loders Croklaan is well positioned to deliver unique functionality and value to the end product. In 2010 we opened a state-of-the-art refinery in Rotterdam, which is the world’s first large-scale refinery to use the process of enzymatic interesterification.
