Palm trees produce more than 5 to 10 times more oil per hectare than any other oil seed. Palm oil plants also need less water and fewer pesticides to grow. Palm oil production contributes significantly to the existence of indigenous populations as a significant proportion of palm oil is produced by indigenous smallholders. Moreover, as forest surfaces and other areas have already been converted for palm oil production, it’s better to continue to use these available areas.
To ensure that our palm oil is produced sustainably – with respect to both people and the environment – Puratos is RSPO certified.
