AAK has announced that it is the first European company to supply sustainably produced palm oil into the UK.
The first shipment has been shipped to AAK’s Hull-based refinery from Malyasia. The oil has been produced by United Plantations and has been successfully audited against the Roundtable on Sunstainable Palm Oil’s (RSPO) new sustainability criteria.
Judith Murdoch, marketing manager of AAK, said: “The arrival of our first shipment of sustainably produced palm oil is an important milestone for AAK. It means our customers have the opportunity to purchase palm oil which has been independently verified as having been sustainably produced. They can then claim that their business uses sustainably produced palm oil.”
