Silbury partners with DAABON to supply Identity Preserved palm oil

22nd November 2018

Silbury, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of specialist vegetable oils and food ingredients, has introduced Identity Preserved (IP) certified sustainable palm oil to the UK market by partnering with DAABON, the first supplier in the world to be accredited to RSPO NEXT, the highest and most stringent level of certification for sustainable palm oil. 

Palm Fruit Cultivation Small

The palm oil, which is traceable to the farms in Colombia where the palm fruits are grown, will add to Silbury’s existing organic and fully segregated palm oil offering in order to enable customers to meet demand for palm products that have been produced without harm to people, animals or the environment.   

 The products will include refined (RBD) palm fruit and palm kernel oils; palm shortenings; fractionated products such as liquid olein for frying and solid stearins; palm oil blended with soy, sunflower or rapeseed; certified organic and non-organic; and bespoke products developed to customers’ precise requirements.

 Gary Lewis, Director, Oils and Fats, Silbury, said: “There is unprecedented demand in the food industry for vegetable oil products that are not linked to human abuses or deforestation. Through our partnership with DAABON, we can give manufacturers and retailers complete confidence that the palm products they are using adhere to the world’s strictest standards of responsible production, and we can show them the exact origin.

 “Today’s consumers will no longer tolerate poor ethical standards in the production of their food. A common question concerning products labelled sustainable is: ‘But how do we really know where it’s come from?’ By using Identity Preserved palm oil, Silbury now offers an answer to that question.”

 About the producers

 The palm oil supplied by Silbury will come from independently run plantations, 130 family smallholdings, and DAABON’s own plantations, all of which are certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), Fairtrade USA, Rainforest Alliance and verified by the Palm Oil Innovation Group (POIG).

 DAABON also operates palm oil refineries with a combined capacity of 41,000 MT per month, providing flexibility to meet high volume requirements as well as small customised orders.
