WHY DO WE USE PALM OIL IN OUR COVERED NUTS? IS IT SUSTAINABLY SOURCED?

The reason that we use palm oil is because it is a Non-GMO and organic non-hydrogenated oil that stabilizes the nut butter coating on our covered nuts.

Our Certified Organic palm oil in our covered nuts is sourced from South America and is certified under a fully traceable supply chain model. In addition to their RSPO membership, all of our palm oil suppliers have built their own independent sustainability policies. To learn more about Justin's sustainable palm oil journey, click here.

From the beginning, Justin's has been focused on the responsible sourcing of all our ingredients, including our palm oil, and we are constantly pushing the supply chain for advancements in this area. We are members of the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm), which currently represents about 20% of the total palm oil supply. The RSPO encourages sustainable growing practices and human rights initiatives at the farm level, while promoting education about the cultivation and use of certified sustainable palm oil. RSPO is the leading organization to date for sustainably sourced palm oil and Justin's is proud to be among the companies who are actively involved and invested in supporting these initiatives.
