Palm oil, if produced sustainably, can have a positive impact on the environment and the economy.
The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) is a global organisation that has created standards for the production of sustainable palm oil. Palm oil products that are RSPO certified mean they comply with the RSPO Principles and criteria at mill level and the Supply Chain certification standard for the supply chain beyond the mills to the end user.
That’s why our Prep Multi Plus and Prep Palm high performance oils are made from 100% RSPO Segregated Sustainable Palm Oil, so you can be confident that it’s been produced without causing deforestation or exploitation.
Palm oil has become the world’s most widely used vegetable oil for many reasons – it’s vegan, adds texture, is solid at room temperature and has superior cooking qualities!
Despite coming under scrutiny, sustainable palm oil can and does make a positive contribution to issues our planet faces.
Palm oil is a major contributor to the economy in countries where it’s produced, with tens of millions of people in some of the world’s poorest tropical regions depending on it for income.
40% of all palm oil is grown by independent smallholders in Indonesia and Malaysia, so if you choose palm oil, you’ll be supporting them too. The industry has helped lift millions of people out of poverty.
The production of palm oil can also be environmentally friendly, as it requires less land, fertilizer, and pesticides compared to other oil crops.
With a growing population across the globe, there is a need for an efficient and sustainable food source.
Prep Palm is solid at room temperature, can be used in gas fryers or frying ranges, is ultra-long fry life and neutral flavour, making it great for fish and chip shops and takeaways.
Overall, the palm industry is an important source for economic growth and development in many countries, and it has environmental benefits when sustainably sourced! Prep palm blends are RSPO certified, meaning you can be confident that Prep Palm is kind to the planet.
