RSPO

Palm oil has been an essential component of human dietary for millions of people in the world and a significant raw material for the food industry and chemical industry.

Unfortunately, uncontrolled and mismanaged palm oil production is also one of the main causes of deforestation, species extinction, high greenhouse gas emissions or human rights violations in leading producing countries.

 

In order to mitigate this negative aspect of the palm oil production, the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) was established in 2004 by the leading companies in the industry and NGOs with the objective of promoting the growth and use of sustainable oil palm products.

Agritrade is also the only palm oil dealer in Turkey who holds Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certificate.
