Using Danish ingredients to produce Philippine cakes

International collaboration was at the highest level when a large manufacturer of dried noodles and biscuits in the Philippines decided to make the move into the soft cake category. The manufacturer contacted the regional office of Danish emulsifier and stabiliser producer Palsgaard to help with the product development.

Palsgaard pooled the expertise of the technical specialists working in its application centres in Singapore and Denmark. The team then worked with the manufacturer’s product development team to create a new line of Filipino mamon cakes.
