Saraya joined “Japan Sustainable Palm Oil Network” (JaSPON) as board member
Production of palm oil keeps expanding due to increases in food demand worldwide. A wide range of environmental and social problems including logging of tropical rain forests for plantation expansion keeps happening daily. SARAYA was the first Japanese company that joined the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) in 2005. It now contributes its experiences as a board member of the Japan Sustainable Palm Oil Network (JaSPON).
Saraya believes that it is important for members of JaSPON to work together beyond the boundaries of their industry while promoting initiatives in their respective positions. SARAYA will continue with its use of RSPO-certified oil, with the objective of only using RSPO-certified oil in all its Japanese products by 2020, and promoting the same use in all its overseas companies by 2030.
