31 JanTNT Crust is Committed to Sustainability
TNT Crust has joined the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). What does this mean? Simply that TNT Crust will only source and/or use sustainable palm oil certified by the RSPO.
Palm oil is found in roughly half the packaged products sold in the US and Conflict Palm Oil production is one of the world’s leading causes of rainforest destruction. Plantation expansion pushes deep into the heart of the world’s most diverse ecosystems, destroying forests and peatlands and driving irreplaceable wildlife species to the brink of extinction. Indigenous Peoples and rural communities are forcefully removed from their lands to build plantations where child labor and modern-day slavery still occur. All so we can have cheaper snacks.
At TNT Crust, we believe we can do better and we want to be part of the solution. There is in an urgent need for commodities to be produced without causing harm to the environment or society. RSPO certification is an assurance to the customer that the standard of production is sustainable. We think that’s a step in the right direction and we are glad to be a part of it.
