RSPO CERTIFIED: Committed to Sustainability
Unparalleled Commitment to Sustainability
Whitehall Specialties has been busy working with its customers to phase out any Partially Hydrogenated Oils (PHOs) in compliance with the FDA’s removal of any PHOs from its GRAS category. As a result, the company has incorporated Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO) as its preferred trans-fat free fat source option, and recently became RSPO-certified.
What does this mean? Whitehall is committed to operating business in a manner that preserves the environment and its resources for future generations.
“We are excited about our RSPO Certification. Whitehall is committed to sustainability locally and around the world,” Antonio Malaquias, Whitehall Specialties’ Director of Quality Assurance shared. “Our company will continue to implement practices that will lead us to a better world, with a better environment, and social responsibility.”
The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) has developed a set of environmental and social criteria which companies must comply with in order to produce or use Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO). When they are properly applied, these criteria can help to minimize the negative impact of palm oil cultivation on the environment and communities in palm oil-producing regions.
