HAMBURG, Germany, March 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- CREMER OLEO, subsidiary of the globally active CREMER group based in Hamburg, is expanding its presence in Latin America. From the Colombian capital Bogotá, it will coordinate all the company's production, trading and logistics activities on the continent. CREMER OLEO's product range includes plant-based raw materials for cosmetics, food and animal feed, pharmaceuticals, fuels and technical applications.
