Berg + Schmidt Oleochemical –
your specialist for vegetable raw materials

Berg + Schmidt looks back on over 60 years of competence in oils and fats. Originally a trading company, we now regard ourselves as an efficient full-service provider in the field of oleochemicals.

We monitor the markets and offer our customers a range in keeping with their needs. Thanks to our production plants, sales offices, tank farms and distribution warehouses in all the relevant buying and selling markets we are extremely well set up at the hubs of the oleochemical industry.

As an owner-managed family business we follow a sustainable development policy focussed firmly on our customers’ needs. We are proud of our short routes, quick decisions and entrepreneurial confidence – the cornerstones of our success.


Berg + Schmidt will now supply the printing ink industry with BergaSolv IPL. The isopropyl laurate acts as a natural solvent and replaces the products based on crude oil. BergaSolv IPL has full registration and is available from the tank or in IBCs from Ouderkerk (Rotterdam).

Berg + Schmidt is the exclusive supplier of methyl esters based on coconut to the European market. A new thermostable variant has now been developed to meet the special needs of the lubricants industry.

For 20 years the production of medium-chain triglycerides, known as BergaBest MCT Oil, has constituted the core of ester production at Berg + Schmidt. The existing range has now been extended to include a less expensive but functional alternative based on pelargonic acid. BergaLub T900 is available on both a vegetable and a synthetic basis.

Berg + Schmidt is responding to the increasing demand for complex esters with its new BergaLub series. The triple esters have excellent biodegradability and constitute a less expensive alternative to products based on isostearic acid. Applications are mainly in the marine industry and in hydraulic fluids.
