Discover new facts on palm oil and our achievements in its sustainable procurement in our latest Palm Progress Report.

Palm oil plays a significant role in the taste and structure of our food products. Its advantages are the reason why we use palm oil in both our business lines (Bakery Products and Margarines, Culinary Oils and Fats) and we will continue doing so. We are however aware of the challenges linked to it.


We believe that awareness is the first step to a sustainable palm oil supply chain

A sneak peek into the highlights of the report:

🌱 We reached 99.9% traceability to the mill and more than 65% to the plantation. We are very close to the target of 2025!

🌱 100% of our direct palm oil suppliers are committed to a No Deforestation, No Peat, No Exploitation (NDPE) policy.

Discover also the progress that happened over the last year in the Aceh region, Indonesia. Here, we collaborate with Earthworm Foundation to create a positive social impact for local communities and farmers working in high-risk areas in the upstream supply chain.
