Nutiva Regenerative Commitment

At Nutiva, we think about regenerative agriculture broadly. At its core, it means upholding a set of agricultural practices that protect biodiversity, sustain and regenerate soil and fight climate change. While driving the evolution of food systems, this also connects to a bigger regenerative movement that’s as much about agriculture as it is about human culture – and living as sustainably and equitably as we can on planet earth.

Since we were first founded in 1999, these beliefs have motivated Nutiva to contribute 1% of sales revenue to build, grow and support regenerative food systems by expanding sustainable and ethical farming practices, supporting diverse communities, and doing everything we can to help people and our planet live better, together.

Regenerative Agriculture in 2019

We’ve been working with our partners at Natural Habitats [founders of Palm Done Right] since 2009 to ensure that no deforestation or habitat destruction results from growing or harvesting our organic red palm oil.

In 2019 we were proud to support soil health in our red palm supply chain through the continued refinement of natural organic fertilization programs and transitioning family farmers to regenerative systems.

Respecting Animals and their Habitats

As part of our commitment to the planet, we’re working with the Palm Done Right organization to ensure animal habitats and rain forests are preserved, and the environment is nurtured.
Our skincare products are also cruelty-free approved by the eight national animal protection groups that form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC).

Why You Should Get Involved
with Palm Done Right

Palm can be grown for good, bringing benefits to:

  • Our planet, due to palm oil’s land efficiency.
  • Local communities, due to the economic development oil palm production creates.
  • Our market, due to palm oil’s versatility and functionality as an ingredient, lifting product quality and performance.

Together, we can influence change for:

  • Manufacturers that are still using conflict palm oil for their products.
  • Retailers that are still listing products that contain conflict palm oil.
  • Brokers and distributors that are still supplying their customers with products that contain conflict palm oil.
  • Shoppers that have the power to vote with their dollar.
