Premier Foods gets top score in WWF Palm Oil Buyers Scorecard

We’re proud to be recognised for the positive action we are taking on sourcing sustainable palm oil in this year’s WWF’s Palm Oil Buyers Scorecard, published today.

The Scorecard measures how companies are performing on basic steps such as joining the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), committing to and buying sustainable palm oil, and transparency, and we’ve been awarded a 9 out of 9. The full report can be found here.

Alongside Premier Foods, 137 major retailers, consumer goods manufacturers and food service companies from the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan and India were reviewed, including L’Oreal, McDonald’s, Nestlé, Tesco, and Walmart, among others. 

Since the beginning of 2010, 100% of the palm oil we use has been sourced as a minimum through the Green Palm programme, and since early 2015 we have been sourcing 100% certified sustainable palm oil, playing our part in helping to prevent damaging deforestation in South East Asia. 

BM TRADA, the leading independent certification body, has certified all our sites that handle palm oil as having RSPO (Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil) approved traceability systems capable of guaranteeing the use of palm oil from sustainable sources. 

Our full Palm Oil Policy can be found here.
