Company profile

Set up in 2014 by a group of engineers with experience from the dryer and evaporator industries, SiccaDania has already made a name for itself within its area of expertise.

Headquartered in Pilehøj, Denmark, it has offices in France, the Netherlands, China, New Zealand, and Singapore. It opened its Singapore office last year, highlighting the importance of the Southeast Asia market to SiccaDania.

The company engineers, delivers, and installs spray dryers and evaporators used to prepare coffee, tea, and herbal extracts.

They can also be used for transforming milk into milk powder and as extracting starch proteins and fibres from potatoes and tapioca.

In Vietnam, SiccaDania has cooperated with DEVEX, a German company, to provide process equipment that turn extracts from local coffee beans into instant coffee powder.

How the trade agreement would help

Vietnam is a strong, growing economy in Southeast Asia, with more than 90 million consumers. For SiccaDania, this represents an important market to cement the company's presence in the region, following the establishment of its Singapore office.

Simplifying export procedures

The EU-Vietnam free trade agreement will cut red tape and make it easier to export to Vietnam, for example by making customs requirements more transparent.

Easing export barriers

The EU-Vietnam free trade agreement also includes a chapter on trade in services. This will make it easier for SiccaDania to provide after sales service to its customers in Vietnam.

"Our technology is giving a boost to Vietnam's coffee industry. The EU-Vietnam trade agreement will enable us to further develop our strong and competitive position in our sector in Vietnam."
