DuPont Nutrition & Health believes a switch to sustainably certified palm oil will ‘raise the bar’ for sustainable emulsifier supply, says the firm.

The ingredients giant has confirmed that all palm oil sourced by its facility in Grindsted, Denmark - where the company manufactures the majority of its emulsifier products -will be CSPO-certified (Certified Sustainable Palm Oil) as of January 1, 2015.

The firm said it believes such a change to its emulsifiers business ‘will raise the sustainability bar for companies across the global food industry.’

“We have, for some years, held firm to our commitment to sourcing only certified palm oil by 2015, and these changes represent significant progress toward that goal,”​ said Annette Hansen, director of sustainability for DuPont Nutrition & Health.

“Grindsted is our largest emulsifier production facility and ships to an international customer base, so the sustainability benefit accruing for our customers is expected to have a positive global effect.”
