RSPO Sustainable CBS available

Print01, April, 2012   -

For the first time, cocoa butter substitute “CS CEBES™ 30.86 SG” – fully RSPO Segregated Sustainable Palm Kernel Oil – is now available to the Australian and NZ markets.

Unitata’s close partners, AAK-Asia Pacific and AAK-Australia have recently become RSPO Supply Chain Certified allowing them to market and distribute fully segregated sustainable palm & palm kernel products to Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific markets.

Unitata is AAK’s supply chain partner in the manufacture of the globally recognized brand of cocoa butter substitute (CBS), CEBES™ 30.86, which customers can now buy as RSPO certified.

Peter Brazel, General Manager of Aarhus Karlshamn Australia says: “We have been supplying CEBES™ to markets for chocolate, confectionery coatings, compound chocolate and bakery inclusion markets for many years. This new product was developed to satisfy the growing demand for sustainable raw materials and now gives users the opportunity to support sustainable palm oil production, reduce environmental impact and label their products accordingly.

The RSPO recently launched the RSPO trademark logo, which manufacturers can include in their on-pack communication, making it easy for consumers to recognize products containing certified sustainable palm oil.

Supported by AAK’s supply chain partner Unitata and United Plantations, CS CEBES™ 30.86 SG is the first refined CBS product available in Australia to carry the RSPO trademark. Martin Bek-Nielsen, Executive Director of United Plantations, advises: “In 2008 UP were the first palm oil plantation in the world to be a certified producer of RSPO approved sustainable palm oil. This latest development where chocolate manufacturers and others can label their products with the new RSPO trademark, opens the way for consumers to take advantage of sustainability with downstream products on our supermarket shelves. We hope buyers recognize our initiative and take up the challenge to expand this market.
