Coconut oil - Tackling the challenges of an often overlooked sector
TACKLING THE CHALLENGES OF AN OFTEN OVERLOOKED SECTOR
Coconut oil production faces many similar sustainability challenges as other agricultural raw materials, such as poor working conditions, aging coconut trees, and low levels of livelihoods. However, there are few initiatives existing today to tackle these concerns.
In order to better understand the sector and potentially develop an own program to address this, we are working today with the French agricultural research institute CIRAD to conduct an in-depth study on the sector and the challenges impacting it.
While we are unable to source coconut oil sustainably today, we are on the road to 100% sustainable ingredients. This starts with an overall assessment and better understanding of the situation so that we can provide sustainable solutions for tomorrow.
