Cargill Shifts NC Plant to Provide RSPO-Certified Palm Oil

November 27, 2020 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


Global food corporation Cargill is significantly expanding its segregated palm oil capacity in order to help its customers meet their sustainability commitments, the company says. Previously, Cargill offered its North American customers mass-balanced sustainable palm oil, but its new offering in North America meets stricter certification standards for Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).

As part of ongoing efforts to increase the availability of sustainably sourced ingredients, Cargill will become one of North America’s first large-scale suppliers of segregated palm oil certified by the RSPO. Beginning in December, all palm oil production from the company’s Charlotte, North Carolina, refinery will be solely dedicated to providing the sustainably sourced product.
