Our contract manufacturer and supplier uses derivatives of palm oil in the production of some of its products. While there are issues with palm oil, it is up to 10 times more efficient per hectare at producing oil than other sources of vegetable oil. So not using palm sounds like a simple answer, but it’s really not that simple a choice. To use another oil would be to put pressure somewhere else.
Our contract manufacturer uses derivatives of palm oil in the production of some of its products. Since 2009 and until today, our contract manufacturer has purchased all our palm oil and palm kernel oils from members of the “Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil” (RSPO).
