Traceability and transparency have always been a fundamental element in Ferrero’s approach to responsible palm oil sourcing. Since 2018, we have committed to publishing – every six months – the latest list of mills and plantations from which we procure our palm oil. As such, we are pleased to share our latest list, reflecting the January-June 2021 period:
2021 JANUARY – JUNE PALM OIL SUPPLIERS & MILL LIST
By combining both Ferrero and acquired products, between January and June 2021 we sourced 99.47% of RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) Certified Segregated palm oil and 0.53% conventional palm oil. Of this total, 99.40 % is traceable back to plantations. Our responsible approach means that we continue to be committed to a “no-deforestation” supply chain and to source sustainable palm oil that is 100% RSPO Certified Segregated and traceable back to plantations.
We also apply a continuous improvement approach of our value chain and go beyond this already high certification requirement with initiatives that are driven by our Palm Oil Charter.
As a next step in our palm oil transparency commitment, in 2022 we will publish a yearly Progress Report where we will share our journey – including the challenges faced – in achieving the commitments outlined in our Palm Oil Charter and related Action Plan
