Maxx Performance Recommits to Supply RSPO-Certified Sustainable Palm Oil to Customers Worldwide

May 16, 2018

As a leading provider of microencapsulation/encapsulation technologies, Maxx Performance has announced that the palm oil products it supplies to customers throughout the U.S. and around the world are certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). This commitment to highest-quality ingredients and environmental stewardship extends across all of the company’s food and feed solutions.

“We’ve been an active supporter of sustainable palm since 2008. We hope our renewed commitment will encourage more participation across the supply chain and help RSPO palm oil become mainstream,” said Winston Samuels, President & CEO of Maxx Performance.

The RSPO Principles & Criteria define the practices for sustainable palm oil production covering the legal, economic, environmental and social requirements of producing sustainable palm oil. At the end of 2017, 100 percent of Maxx Performance’s total crude palm oil was purchased from RSPO members; the company continues to encourage its suppliers to join RSPO and attain certification for all of their palm plantations.

“All of our manufacturing customers and their end customers benefit from RSPO practices,” added Samuels. “Consumers today not only desire quality products that reflect a reduction in the use of pesticides, but they also want to know that those products have been responsibly grown and harvested. We’re proud to be part of the movement to preserve primary forests and fragile ecosystems.”
