As palm oil is an important raw material for many of our vegetable based products we dedicated our self to its sustainable production. Currently, our product portfolio contains a lot of RSPO Mass Balance and Segregated certified products as we became a RSPO member in 2010 and received our first official RSPO certification in 2013.
To further increase our commitment for sustainable palm oil we took another step and are proud to tell you that we are an
official Supporter of FONAL since November 2017.
FONAP means “Forum Nachhaltiges Palmöl” (English: Forum for Sustainable Palm Oil). It was founded in 2013 and consists of private companies, non-governmental organisations and associations as well as the Federal Ministry for nutrition and agriculture. In addition to the self-commitment of their members, the main focus is put on continuous development and enhancement of certification systems for sustainable palm oil (RSP, RSPO, ISCC and RAINFOREST ALLIANCE certification) which are officially accepted by FONAP.
So far, producers of derivatives could only fulfil parts of FONAP member’s self-commitment. As those companies, also including Peter Greven, are an important part of the palm oil supply chain the new category “Supporter” was introduced. This new category shall close the gap within the supply chains and support FONAP members to accomplish their goals.
For further information regarding FONAP and their work, please visit their homepage: https://www.forumpalmoel.org/en/welcome.
We are glad that we were incorporated as a Supporter of FONAP and hope to further increase our influence on the establishment of standards as well as on promotion of sustainably grown palm oil.
