Zeelandia's Global CSR Ambassadors

"Our CSR ambassadors are making the difference with their local sustainability programme" - Ibai Jimenez - CSR & Sustainability Lead 

As a group, we value and encourage local initiative, while we expect our operating companies to adopt standards and tools that emerge from joint CSR projects.

A key to the success of our CSR & Sustainability programme has been the creation of an internal network of CSR ambassadors from over 26 countries. This move is part of the company's commitment to encouraging local initiatives while ensuring that its operating companies adopt standards and tools that emerge from joint CSR strategy.

The role of the CSR ambassadors is to share information, collect feedback, and promote awareness and commitment to CSR topics with their local colleagues. These ambassadors have voluntarily joined the community and have demonstrated their enthusiasm and commitment to the cause. They were selected by the local management teams to ensure that they had the support of their local colleagues.

We acknowledge that the creation of this internal network of CSR ambassadors is a significant step toward achieving our sustainability goals.
The establishment of this network of CSR ambassadors in 2020 was a clear indication that Zeelandia Group takes its sustainability commitments seriously. The network will provide a platform for exchanging ideas and sharing best practices, ultimately leading to more sustainable business practices.

As a leading producer of baking ingredients, we recognize the need to promote sustainable practices in the food industry. With the creation of this internal network of CSR ambassadors, we are well-positioned to achieve our sustainability goals and make a positive impact on the environment.

Zeelandia is ready for a titanium dioxide-free era

Recently the European Commission proposed to remove titanium dioxide (E171) from the closed list of allowed additives in the EU.


Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is a naturally occurring oxide of titanium, sourced from minerals. It is used in a wide range of goods, such as toothpaste and hygiene and pharmaceutical products. Titanium dioxide is also widely used in the food industry as an additive (E171), because of its colour and opacifying properties. In bakery, it is being used in e.g. water-based bakery fillings, instant custard mixes and various white coverings.


In the last few years however, the use of E171 in food products has been the subject of debate. In the European Union titanium dioxide will be deleted from the 1st of January 2022 from the allowed list of colours in foodstuff and from the 1st of July there is a complete ban for putting on shelves products containing titanium dioxide.

For the last years Zeelandia has been working on developing solutions without titanium dioxide. We are prepared with our technical solutions and we adapted and developed numerous products free of TiO2. We are able to offer solutions without the additive well in time to assure compliance with the new EU legislation.


If you have any questions on this topic, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We will support you and give advice on your recipes and products.
