PALM OIL PROCUREMENT - RSPO
Demand for this vegetable oil is steadily growing because of palm oil’s diverse uses and good processing properties, as well as the oil palm’s large surface area productivity. Cultivation of oil palms poses serious risks, however, to mankind and nature. Large areas of rain forests are cleared and peat soil drained in order to create oil palm plantations, which not only destroys the habitats of indigenous people and numerous animal species, it also releases large volumes of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
The high per hectare yield is the decisive criterion for Chocolat Frey using palm oil in its fillings instead of coconut oil or other vegetable oils. Chocolat Frey only processes sustainable, 100% RSPO-certified palm oil.
The WWF established the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). RSPO segregated ensures traceability and Chocolat Frey knows from which plantations its palm oil is sourced. In addition, the plantations are monitored by independent organisation The Forest Trust (TFT).
