Palm Oil

Joey's is committed to participating in the Dorset Sustainable Palm Oil Community initiative. From day one we have worked with our suppliers to ensure that where palm oil is present in our food, it will be sourced from sustainable sources. This process is facilitated through annual supplier audits. By doing so, we know that we are helping to support livelihoods, fight climate change & protect wildlife around the world from the impact of unsustainable agricultural practices. 

Background

  • Palm oil production is traditionally associated with deforestation & the consequent impact on biodiversity, climate change & other negative environmental impacts.

  • However, sustainable palm oil is produced in a manner which minimises environmental impact & meets strict criteria throughout the production process.

  • The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) is the major international stakeholder body which defines these criteria. They include:

    • no deforestation of high carbon stock (HCS) or high conservation value (HCV) forests and ecosystems

    • no development of peatland

    • zero burning

    • responsible labour practices and respect of the rights of local communities
