RSPO-Certified Palm Oil
We understand the impact uncontrolled cultivation of palm oil can have on rainforests and biodiversity. That is why we are constantly monitoring its use in our products and are committed to only purchasing sustainable, RSPO certified palm oil.
We are trying to strike a balance between visually appealing packaging and quality aspects associated with product protection. We also reduce packaging sizes and use recyclable materials wherever possible.
