Industry Demonstrates Continued Growth and Commitment to Sustainable Palm Oil

Key Industry Players Rally Behind The Palm Done Right Movement

Boulder, Colo. February 24, 2020 — Mission-based educational platform Palm Done Right, continues to be a leader in the palm oil sector, gaining new supporters and offering solutions to industry stakeholders. Palm Done Right and the company behind the campaign, Natural Habitats will share insight and solutions at Natural Products Expo West March 5-7th at the organic pavilion, Hall B, Booth #1910.

A long-time supporter and donor of The Climate Collaborative, Natural Habitats encourages natural food leaders to drive climate action in the industry.  “Our commitment to climate efforts ties directly to our Palm Done Right Promises of producing palm oil in a way that is 100% organic, deforestation-free, wildlife friendly, fair and social,” says Monique van Wijnbergen Corporate Communications and Sustainability Director at Natural Habitats Group. “Like our friends at The Climate Collaborative, we are committed to creating real change in our industry that will have a positive effect on our planet and will benefit farmer communities’”.

Palm Done Right is proud to welcome a few new partners, including Happy Campers Gluten Free and Let There Be Hemp. Stay tuned for more on their new products coming soon.

“As a better-for-you snack company, Let There Be Hemp believes in using the highest quality ingredients that are sourced from sustainable farmers and processors. That’s why we were so happy to discover Palm Done Right. We source Palm Done Right palm oil because it is 100% organic & fairly traded and their supply chain is completely transparent. We care about making sure that everyone in the supply chain is treated right — from the farmers and communities to the animals and forests. Plus, using palm oil ensures that our products function well and taste great”, says company Co-founder Mike Goose.

Our growing community of retail and brand partners continue to support the Palm Done Right mission by educating consumers about the importance of producing palm right and communicating transparently about why they use palm oil and why choosing sustainable palm oil is the way forward. Be sure to look for these partner brands at Natural Products Expo West.
