A palm oil manufacturer has won a food ingredients award after judges praised its efforts in building a traceable, transparent and sustainable supply chain.

IOI Loders Croklaan won the Sustainability Champion Award at the Food Ingredients Europe (FiE) Innovation Awards, which took place at FiE at the end of November.

IOI’s Palm Oil Sustainability Programme includes a three-step approach – focused on traceability, risk assessment, and supplier capacity building – to trace back to the supplier mill and plantation level.

“We have achieved 100% traceability to mill level. With our strengthened policies and commitments – particularly our third-party supplier policy annex – we have set a new standard for best practices in the sector,”​ said IOI director of sustainability Ben Vreeburg.
