RSPO

Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil

Twin Rivers is a committed, responsible partner having become certified by the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) in 2013. RSPO is a multi-stakeholder initiative to reduce the negative impacts of palm oil cultivation on the environment and communities. In order to support this initiative, Twin Rivers offers a comprehensive list of vegetable fatty acids made with certified sustainable mass balance palm oil. The volume of palm oil in these products reflects an equivalent volume of palm oil or palm kernel oil produced by RSPO certified mills and plantations. We remain the leader in our industry for renewable and certified-sustainable raw materials, with 13% of our product line offered as RSPO Certified Sustainability Mass Balance Fatty Acids.
