Brakes have been committed to working with our global supply base to ensure that all palm oil & palm oil fractions used in Brakes brand products are sourced from sustainable crops. e.g. sourced through one or more of the Sustainable Supply Chain models such as those prescribed by the RSPO.
From 1st January 2019, Brakes committed to only use palm oil & palm oil fractions in Brakes brand products that are RSPO certified sustainable to either ‘Mass Balance’, ‘Segregated’, or Identity Preserved’ models.
On the 2nd July 2019, Brakes achieved RSPO Supply Chain Certification for the purchase, storage and distribution of food products for the restaurant and catering industries. We have a range of products that satisfy the chain of custody requirements and can be offered as RSPO Certified.
This policy may be extended to palm kernel oil, and palm oil derivatives, as certified sustainable sources become more commercially available. In developing product recipes, Brakes will give all due consideration to the use of alternative vegetable oils, such as sunflower or rapeseed, in products where this is viable.
