Spanish Industry calls government to support sustainable palm oil

Posted on: June 05, 2018

On 29 May 2018, the Spanish Foundation on Sustainable Palm Oil organised a workshop in Madrid with the title: Sustainable palm oil, is it really that far? [- Sostenibilidad y aceite de palma: realmente tan lejos? ]

It was a constructive meeting attended by approximately 50 participants representing retail, food manufacturers, governments from Spain and palm oil producing countries as well as expert media. Together, the palm oil industry, RSPO and NGOs (Conservation International and the Global Nature Foundation) presented their views on stage, followed by a constructive debate.

The meeting resulted in a call from the Spanish Industry to the Spanish government to support the move to 100% sustainable palm oil in Spain.
