This Christmas, you can buy your Christmas food shopping, mince pies, boxes of chocolate and biscuits from companies that only use sustainable palm oil. Or you could choose to boycott palm oil and buy palm oil free products.
We've put together a list of companies which receive our best rating for palm oil, either for being a palm oil free company or for using best practices in their sourcing.
For example, a company must have all of the possible palm products (palm oil, palm kernel oil, palm oil derivatives) used in its global supply chain certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) plus something extra like full disclosure of volumes, suppliers, or traceability to the mill. Or else a high proportion certified and even more other positive initiatives.
The higher proportion of palm sourced from 'segregated' supply chains, the easier it is for a company to achieve our best rating.
Another way companies can demonstrate engagement on this issue is by sourcing palm oil that is certified as organic.
For all of the best-rated companies, we list their individual products that are palm oil free.
