We continue to engage vendors and work with our partners to support transformation of the palm industry towards a sustainable supply.

Since 2009, Fonterra has been a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), which is a non-profit organisation set up by World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to promote the growth and use of sustainable palm oil products through credible standards and engagement with stakeholders.

Heavy global demand for vegetable oil has made palm oil the most widely used vegetable oil across the world.

The Fonterra Palm Product Standard

In August 2016, we released the Fonterra Palm Product Standard which commits Fonterra to a higher standard of sustainability and more proactive and transparent monitoring of the palm products that we source globally. This standard was shaped in consultation with our stakeholders.
