We especially look at the origin and taste of all the oils that we use to make our crispy snacks. Besides sunflower oil, we also use palm oil to make our products. For the products that we use palm oil for, already in 2014 we switched to 100% certified sustainable palm oil at all our European locations.
The high global demand for palm oil led to a spread in cultivation areas in the past, which threaten valuable natural habitats in the Tropics (for e.g. the rain forest). This is why the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) was founded in 2004 on an initiative of the WWF. International companies, which produce or use palm oil, environmental groups as well as other NGOs work together in the RSPO to promote environmentally responsible and sustainable palm oil that is certified according to specified criteria.
