To support the relative share of responsibly produced palm oil


News 7.5.2020

Palm oil production has rapidly grown during the recent years. As production increases, concerns towards the impact of palm oil cultivation on the ecosystem and the local population have increased.

At Algol Chemicals, we want to participate in increasing the relative share of responsibly produced palm oil sales.

The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) was founded in 2004 with the aim of improving palm oil production practices and ensuring the traceability of palm oil deliveries from cultivation to the finished product. BM TRADA is the world’s first certification body approved as a provider of palm oil supply chain certification. Algol Chemicals Oy joined RSPO as a distribution chain member on June 25, 2019. We were granted with membership number 9-3241-19-000-00. Through our membership, we are committed to promoting the sale and marketing of responsibly produced palm oil in all of our market areas.

The products in our portfolio, containing palm oil come from our long-term partners Estichem (Finland), Kao Chemicals (Finland) and S.O.G.I.S. (Scandinavia).
