Sustainable palm oil

Sonneveld is committed to actively using natural ingredients in its production processes and therewith preserving the environment for future generations. As of September 2013 all palm oil products are purchased by using the ‘Mass Balance’ system. Besides this, as of this date all systems have been equipped to process sustainable palm oil.



Initiatives for sustainable palm oil

Sonneveld, as one of the frontrunners and a member of the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) since 2010, together with other Dutch companies, made sure regulations were created concerning the production of sustainable palm oil.

As of October 2010, Sonneveld has been compensating for its annual palm oil usage by GreenPalm certificates via the ‘Book and Claim’ principle. To give palm oil more awareness within the Dutch food industry, Sonneveld has participated in 2010 in an initiative called Monkey Business.

In September 2013 Sonneveld sets the next step and purchase palm oil products by using the ‘Mass Balance’ system. Besides this, as of this date all systems have been equipped to process sustainable palm oil. Sonneveld has received an official certificate of RSPO for this. This certificate states that all systems Sonneveld is using for the production of its products, are certified for Mass Balance (MB) and Segregated (SG).

Sustainable produced palm oil: the standard for 2015

Palm oil is used in more than half of the products which consumers sell at supermarkets. Therefore, palm oil is the most frequent used vegetable oil in the world. Because of the increasing demand of palm oil, the area where palm oil is grown, is rapidly extending. It is important that this extension is done in a sustainable way with respect for people and nature. Sonneveld expects as of 2015 to process only ‘Segregated’ palm oil in its products.

Alternatives

Besides palm oil, Sonneveld also uses other vegetable oils in its products, such as rape seed oil and sunflower oil.
