The food group Ferrero has announced that its flagship product Nutella is now using 100% segregated palm oil certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) in the French market. This decision affects its production units in France, but also one in Italy and another in Germany, supplying other European markets. Ferrero also confirmed that it will source exclusively RSPO-certified palm oil globally starting from 2014, bringing its initial target forward by one year.
-As we know, it is our responsibility to hold the food makers accountable for the ingredients that they place in our foods. Due to social pressure, Nutella will be using palm oil that DOESN’T contribute to deforestation in their product!
