Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    - Training of our staff ? direct verbal communication to our food ingredients customers

    - Integration in our product catalog of our products

    - Integration in our promotion material for palm oil like flyers, brochures etc.
  • Where relevant, what processes is the organisation establishing to engage with interested parties, for example to resolve conflict or to use sustainably produced palm oil?
    - As we are working with 100% organic products our clients are per se interested in sustainable products / food ingredients. We will inform all interested clients and stakeholders about the background of the sustainable palm production

    - Our company is engaged since many years in fair trade activities. The palm oil will as well be traded as a fair trade product with many advantages for the growers / workers in the countries of origin. Therefore the part of sustainable trading / businesses is given anyway.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    - We think that we work already in this context as we are working since 40 years with organic products exclusively and for more than 20 years with Fair Trade products.
  • Any other information that would support the application such as what your organisation hopes to gain from joining RSPO and how it would support RSPO?
    - RSPO is a well known concept / organization for the development of sustainable palm trade etc. Some of our customers of organic food ingredients deliver their products to super market chains which are well informed about the situation in the palm sector. We hope that we could ease their purchase activities towards more sustainable products by offering organic + fair trade + RSPO palm oil / palm oils products.
