We’re committed to being environmentally responsible, field to shelf
Palm Fruit Extract is responsibly produced with a traceable North American supply chain.
With our partner, Uumbal, we are raising the bar on oil palm sustainability and caring for the environment.
The land Uumbal uses for oil palm plantations was once severely damaged by livestock. Through an extensive reforestation program, more than 16,000 acres have been recovered and planted with African oil palms, the most productive oil crop in the world.
Our plantation partner certifications:
The Forest Stewardship Council
The Rainforest Alliance
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
Palm Fruit Extract is derived from the nutrient-rich palm oil production water stream. These nutrients were previously being washed away during the milling process. We repurpose this into a premium, multifunction ingredient that supports human health.
Our partner satisfies 80% of their energy needs with steam produced from oil palm biomass. This dramatically reduces the use of traditional fuels.
Caring for people
Our partner’s production processes are designed to respect people and the planet.
