    Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    We take sustainability extremely seriously. we intend to fully train our sales teams and business in what RSPO stands for, means for our businesses but most importantly what it means for our customers and the end consumer. We are in the business of marketing heavily all the positive messages of palm oil
  • 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?
    We intend to have the RSPO in place for 3 key palm brands within the trademark portfolio of the Q partnership Ltd. These brands are Q Palm, Q gold and FriWite. Through marketing plans for each of these products we aim to convey all the positive messages associated with RSPO.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    We are a UK Foodservice distributor and therefore several places along the supply chain from the actual mills and plantations. In order to implement the RSPO supply chain requirements we work closely with a founding member of the RSPO AAK. We have reviewed the AAK commitment through meetings, discussing in detail their policy for RSPO CSPO and finally by receiving regular updates to their progression towards 100% RSPO CSPO. By also becoming a member we will ensure the supply chain to consumer is not broken.
  • 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?
    We aim to gain the ability of being able to promote the benefits of sustainable palm but most importantly being able to promote to end users (consumers) the importance of the RSPO.
