Cargill to provide Unilever with sustainable palm oil

Cargill has entered into a supply agreement to provide Unilever’s European operations with 10,000 metric tonnes of segregated refined palm oil, certified by the Round Table for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).

"As the demand for certified sustainable palm oil continues to grow, we are combining our supply chain expertise and industry knowledge to provide customers with choices to meet their particular requirements. We are very pleased to partner with Unilever and see this as a big step forward in the drive towards palm oil sustainability," said Paul Naar, head of Cargill’s food business in Europe.

The company has set a goal of buying 60 per cent of its total crude palm oil from RSPO members by the end of 2010. The offering of fully segregated refined palm oil follows the RSPO certification of the company’s European and Malaysian oil refineries.
