Part of DLG Food
DLG Food comprises the DLG Group's rapeseed mills which refine rapeseed oil for the food industry. DLG Food Oil is based in Agersted in North Jutland but also has a rapeseed mill in the port of Bandholm on Lolland. Food Oil offers Danish-produced refined rapeseed oil from the finest component of mainly Nordic rapeseed - the germ itself. The oil is distinguished by its natural aroma, colour and taste and is suitable for frying, baking, dressings and marinades.
In August 2012, DLG Food Oil put a new refinery into service, thus increasing capacity from 70,000 to 120,000 tonnes. DLG Food Oil is the industry supplier of rapeseed oil, using only European GMO-free rapeseed in the production.
The company was formerly called DanRaps and was established in 1996. It is fully owned by DLG Food.
