Palsgaard is pleased to announce that the company has been
certified by the RSPO Supply Chain Certification Standard on 30th
The RSPO certification allows Palsgaard to offer Mass Balance
certified products to its customers.
That Palsgaard has become Mass Balance certified means that the
company has implemented the administrative system defined by the
RSPO ensuring that an amount of certified sustainable palm oil has
been produced corresponding to the amount of palm oil in the
product supplied by Palsgaard.
Palsgaard believes that future trends and requirements from its
customers and interest groups are urgently heading towards
sustainable raw materials and hence finished products. This is why
the emulsifier company has taken the first step in the RSPO Supply
Chain certification level. RSPO certification makes it possible to
state a claim on the final product label, thereby assuring the
customer that he has a choice when picking up his consumer goods
from the supermarket shelves.
It is important for Palsgaard to take part in promoting a
sustainable process throughout the supply chain of palm oil and
palm derivatives. Palsgaard is already financially supporting the
sustainable growth and processing of palm oil through its
membership of the RSPO. The company, founded more than 100 years ago, has a
deep rooted culture of social and environmental consideration,
which is why it has chosen to start manufacturing select products
on responsible grown and processed palm raw materials.
Palsgaard began working systematically with its corporate
culture and responsible approach in 2010 and subsequently published
CSR report in 2011. One of the objectives on the company's CSR
agenda is to increase the share of certified palm oil and
derivatives thereof in its palm based emulsifiers to 100% by
