We can assure you that we are committed to only using sustainably- and ethically sourced products and ingredients.
This is also the case with palm oil where we only use certified sustainable palm oil (CSPO). We have been in the process of investigating other oils to roast our nuts.
The investigations, unfortunately, do take time as there are numerous elements that need to be taken into consideration to find a solution that is not harmful to our customers and still provide the best quality product at an affordable price.
Until we introduce another roasting oil we are committed, and have been for some time, to only buy palm oil from suppliers that belong to RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil).
RSPO is a global organisation dedicated to the sustainable production of palm oil and has developed a set of standards, principles and criteria that address the legal, economic, environmental and social requirements of producing sustainable palm oil.
These include; ensuring that no new primary forests or high conservation value areas have been cleared for palm oil production since November 2005, and that mills and plantation owners minimise their environmental footprint. We believe that the RSPO is the most legitimate body to help solve the environmental and social issues associated with palm oil.
This said we are always looking to innovate and improve on what we do and this is why we are currently investigating other oils for roasting and will keep our customers posted.
