ADM to expand availability of RSPO-certified sustainable palm oil
Agribusiness giant Archer Daniels Midland Co. announced it plans to exclusively offer Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil-certified sustainable palm oil to North American customers beginning next year. In addition, the company says it is working with Wilmar International Ltd. to provide fully traceable, sustainable palm oil that meets the RSPO Mass Balance standards.
“ADM and Wilmar share a commitment to environmental stewardship and community preservation,” said Ray Bradbury, vice president of ADM’s North American Oils group. “ADM supports Wilmar’s recent ‘No Deforestation, No Peat, No Exploitation’ policy, which is designed to advance industry transformation to help protect people and the environment. This enables us to offer customers a palm oil product that is fully traceable and sourced from crops that are responsibly grown and harvested.”
ADM has palm distribution and processing facilities in Lincoln, Neb.; Quincy, Ill.; Valdosta, Ga.; and New Orleans that currently offer certified sustainable palm oil.
