Become RSPO certified — first time right
For companies to claim that their final product comes from a sustainable palm oil source, they must comply with the RSPO certification standard. The RSPO certification standard consists of a set of criteria that companies need to apply. The standard assists to protect and minimize the negative impact of palm oil cultivation on the environment and communities in palm oil-producing regions.
To achieve this certification, you’re looking for a first time right and smooth certification process with a trusted and experienced partner.
