Dear Business Partner,

Our company’s deepest sympathies go out to those who have been impacted by the coronavirus. We keep a close eye on developments and follow the advice of the National Institute for Public Health (RIVM) and the World Health Organisation (WHO).

All advices and measures from RIVM are still aimed at limiting or delaying the consequences of this virus outbreak. We will not shake hands for the time being. We asked our employees to work from home as much as possible and to cancel business trips until further notice. In case of fever or symptoms of a cold (sneezing, coughing, sore throat) they are not allowed to come to the office.

In the meantime we are proceeding with our distribution activities. We maintain contact with our logistics service provider to ensure the progress of your order. If you would like to check the delivery of your order, please feel free to contact us by email at

For any other questions, our team remains available by phone and email.

Stay safe & well

Sisterna sucrose esters

Sucrose esters are produced with sucrose, from beet and cane, and fatty acids from palm and coconut oil. This enables them to be used as emulsifiers in virtually all food and personal care products. Emulsifiers are substances that are able to mix two immiscible substances that normally do not mix, for example water and oil and water and air (foam). Although sucrose esters are categorized as emulsifiers, their functionality is not only emulsification.
