Cannelle Bakery has become a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). This organisation, which consists of 3872 members globally, has been established with the aim of improving the practice of oil production and ensuring the traceability of palm oil from the plantation to the finished product. The biggest European food product merchants and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) have made a public resolution to sell products (food, household goods and cosmetics) that contain RSPO-certified palm oil only. This will reassure consumers that the products they use are not only qualitative, but also do not contribute to the destruction of vast forest areas for the benefit of new palm plantations. It is the ecological and social factors that give palm oil a bad name and create stereotypes, even though humans have been using it for thousands of years. RSPO was established as a control body that aims to protect natural forests and endangered animal and plant species from further destruction and extermination, as well as to limit the areas of forests that are turned into oil palm plantations. As a new RSPO member, Cannelle Bakery acknowledges its willingness to take responsibility not only locally but also globally.
