Sustainability is an import topic in our business as we promote and sell sucrose esters which are produced with sucrose, from beet and cane, and fatty acids from palm and coconut oil.
RSPO has been set up as independent organization to develop and implement global standards for sustainable palm oil. Both DKS, producer of Sisterna sucrose esters, and Sisterna as distributor have been accepted and registered as a Member of the Round Table of Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).
Since 2013 we have been promoting and supporting the sustainable palm oil production. First through the purchase of Book & Claim certificates and since 2017 through the actual purchase of certified sustainable palm oil according to the Mass Balance system.
Although we recognize that there is a growing demand for palm-free ingredients within the industry and outside from consumers, it is not so evident to replace palm oil by other vegetable oils. It would actually create similar - if not even larger - environmental and social problems.
As long as there is no sustainable, technical and economical alternative for palm oil, Sisterna will commit to using sustainably-sourced palm oil.
