GreenPalm will discuss the complexities of achieving fully segregated certified sustainable palm oil supply chains for those in the food & non-food industry
GreenPalm, the sustainable palm oil certificate-trading programme, has announced the first trade of PKE (Palm Kernel Expeller) certificates between Keresa Plantations in Malaysia and Dutch dairy cooperative, CONO Kaasmakers.
Semi-solid at room temperature, palm oil and palm kernel oil are amongst the world’s most versatile raw materials. As a result they can be found in one in two supermarket products including many baked goods; from cookies and pastries to bread and pies. In fact, the use of palm oil in the USA has tripled in the past decade, particularly in the baking industry where it is sometimes preferred as a healthier, trans fat-free alternative to traditional bakery fats.
GreenPalm, the sustainable palm oil certificate-trading programme, is growing from strength to strength, but the transition period to a fully sustainable palm oil industry will be a long haul that needs commitment from all corners of the globe.
The first European summit for sustainable palm oil "Certified sustainable palm oil in Europe: taking the market transformation to the next level". The summit takes place on the 3rd September in Berlin.
