UB ( United biscuit) has joined group of companies committed to promote sustainable palm oil on guidelines of RSPO . United biscuit has entered into a two year supply agreement with New Britain Palm Oil Limited.( NBPOL). There has been lots of criticism of food company ignoring RSPO ( Roundtable on sustainable Palm Oil).
The UK refinery will have a dedicated supply source from NBPOL's certified sustainable plantations, which it said means the palm oil will be fully segregated and traceable from seed to finished product. UB has plan to get 100% sustainable palm oil for all its product by end of year 2011.
