Smallholders account for 40% of the global palm oil production, and are an important stakeholder essential to sustainable development. We aim to integrate independent smallholders into sustainable palm oil supply chains through this program.

Responsible Sourcing

Third parties supply approximately 90% of the palm oil that we trade and process. We invest significant resources to trace the source of our oil and to support our suppliers in adhering to our Sustainability Policy. We focus on positive engagement by delivering tailored solutions and technical assistance to build our suppliers’ capacity and enhance their NDPE performance.

Partnerships and Collaboration​

To achieve real transformation on the ground, we must look beyond our own supply chains and work together with all stakeholders across the palm oil sector to tackle issues that impact both our industry and the global landscape at large.
