Working with local projects and certified sources
We are a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), a multi-stakeholder group that set the global standard for sustainable palm oil.
From 1 January 2016, 100% of the palm oil used in our own-label food products in the UK & Ireland has been sourced from RSPO physically certified, sustainable sources. This includes all palm oil, palm kernel oil and palm oil derivatives and fractions.
From 1 January 2019, we also converted all of the palm oil in our own-label non-food products to RSPO sources. For our non-food products there are some derivatives and fractions that we are unable to source as physically certified (less than 1%), these will be covered by RSPO Credits until they are available as physically certified or by 2025 at the latest.
