Palm fat has many positive attributes such as a firm consistency and good spreading properties. Unfortunately, the mass cultivation of oil palms has led to the large-scale deforestation of the rain forests. This is why we are not only committed to using sustainable palm oil but also to replacing it with other ingredients where possible.
Since January 2015, we have been a member of the “Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil” (RSPO) and have been awarded certification (segregated) in compliance with the RSPO standard. This corresponds to the second highest certification level which specifies that the palm oil we use may originate from different palm oil plantations and mills but must be 100% RSPO-certified.
The RSPO’s mission is to promote the sustainable cultivation of palm oil worldwide, whilst offering certification along the supply chain.
