Vandemoortele founding member of Spanish Foundation for Sustainable Palm Oil

At Vandemoortele, we care about the future. We make great tasting and enjoyable food in a responsible way. We believe it is important to continue to work on raising awareness of the benefits of sustainable palm oil for the food industry

In June 2017, Vandemoortele established the ‘Fundación Española del Aceite de Palma Sostenible’, together with Unilever, Ferrero, Lipidos Santiga, Gracomsa and Natra. 

The Spanish foundation was created to improve knowledge and raise awareness of the benefits and characteristics of the most used vegetable oil in the world. The foundation will also play an active role in promoting transformation in the sustainable palm oil supply chain, with the aim of achieving the target of zero deforestation by 2020.
