In 2013, IOI Loders Croklaan imported and marketed 348,000 tons of sustainable palm oil in Europe. That is 34% of the total volume sold by IOI Loders Croklaan in 2013.
“For 2013, our goal was to increase the volume of certified sustainable palm oil to 30% of our European sales. We are excited to see that we have reached and even exceeded our goal, since we are very committed in stimulating the buying of certified palm oil,” said Ben Vreeburg, IOI Loders Croklaan Sustainability Director. “We expect a continuous increase of RSPO [Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil] certified palm oil in 2014.”
IOI Loders Croklaan sustainable palm oil is primarily produced by its parent company, IOI Group in Malaysia, one of the founding members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). This year IOI Group has reached a full RSPO certification of its mills.
