Q: Why do you use uncertified sustainable palm oil? You can see what is happening in Indonesia because of illegal palm oil. How many more animals have to die before you get it right? - Rhonda, Regional NSW
A: Hi Rhonda, although we are a very small user of palm oil, we’ve been committed to responsibly sourcing palm oil since 2009. All of the palm oil that is used in our products is sourced from a combination of the Roundtable of Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) Certified Segregated supply chain, RSPO Mass Balance mixed-source supply and the purchase of Green Palm certificates.
We’re always working with our global suppliers to source fully traceable palm oil from certified sources that are economically, socially and environmentally responsible. Our suppliers have to adhere to a strict set of criteria that ensures forest and peat lands, and human rights are all protected.
As part of our overall climate commitments, Kellogg is committed to achieving zero net deforestation by 2020 in high-risk supply chains including soy, palm oil, timber, fiber and soy.
