Profile

Your specialist for oils, fats and margarines

Holistic responsibility

Florin AG is involved in the entire production process, from the selection and pressing of the seeds, to refining of the raw oils, their bottling or post-processing in the margarine and fat factory to storage in oil tanks or state-of-the-art high-rack warehouses. Our head office in Muttenz, near Basel, has direct connections to the road and rail network and to the international waterways via the Auhafen port.

 

Sustainable corporate development

We are committed to a healthy, continuous and long-term growth under our own steam. Our independence, ongoing modernisation of our plants and guaranteed quality and flexibility are key prerequisites for this. As the most important purchaser of domestic oil seeds, we are in close contact with Swiss farmers and their organisations and support them in developing decision-making principles for agricultural policy. We meet our remaining requirement for seeds and crude oil on the international raw materials markets in harmony with our Responsible Sourcing Policy.
