An Origin Story
Palm oil is the most widely consumed vegetable oil on the planet, being present in about half of all packaged products sold in supermarkets. The plant grows in tropical rainforests, which are typically rich in biodiversity. While palm oil is the most efficient source of vegetable oil, its rapid expansion may threaten parts of the planet’s most important and sensitive habitats. In order to nip this issue in the bud, more and more companies are starting to place importance on tracing the palm oil to its original supply base.
How would this then help us to conserve rainforests, you may ask?
