DuPont Nutrition & Health switches to 100% certified sustainable palm oil


2017-02-15

DuPont Nutrition & Health has completed its switch to 100% certified sustainable palm oil and palm oil derivatives used in its Global emulsifier production. The achievement is the latest milestone since the company pioneered the introduction of sustainable palm oil emulsifiers in 2009.

Following the 2009 launch of the world’s first palm oil emulsifiers from Mass Balance supply chain certified by Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), the first emulsifiers made with RSPO-certified Segregated palm oil joined the DuPont™ Danisco® range in 2011.

The new development means that the remainder of the company’s entire global range of palm-based emulsifiers is now based on RSPO-certified sustainable palm oil and derivatives, which promotes the production of palm oil with greater consideration of its environmental and social impacts, the company reported.
