The RSPO Secretariat would like to congratulate our Latin American members for reaching 1 million metric tonnes of Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO) production capacity. This milestone was reached earlier this April, as two new grower companies received certification and pushed the last 70,000MT of CSPO into the region’s certified output. The 1 million MT milestone comes from 23 certified growers in the region from Colombia, Guatemala, Ecuador, Brazil, Costa Rica and Honduras, covering a total of over 322,000 hectares of certified land. This means 22% of the region’s palm oil is RSPO-certified, making it the fastest growing region in terms of certified hectarage.
Acknowledging the work of smallholders
Assessing the wider implications for CSPO in Latin America
RSPO CEO Datuk Darrel Webber added: “Welcome Latin America to the million-tonne club! This is a watershed moment and we will surely see the industry pick up the pace to produce the best kind of edible oil...Certified Sustainable Palm Oil.”
Once again, we are certain RSPO members will use this milestone as an inspiration to continue the hard work they’ve been doing and continue the rapid growth of certification in Latin America.
