Retail chain giant Carrefour has launched the first RSPO trademarked product in Indonesia with its own-brand cooking oil ECOplanet.

The cooking oil is made from RSPO-certified 100% Indonesian grown palm oil. The trademark signifies sustainable plantation cultivation, sourcing and environmentally-friendly production.

The move has been described as ‘significant’ by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) as Indonesia is the second largest palm oil consuming market in the world.

Darrel Webber, secretary general of RSPO, said that the move “should blaze the trail in inspiring other players within the Indonesian palm oil supply chain to transform the palm oil industry into a sustainable industry”.

“The RSPO trademark which was introduced a year ago provides the right momentum for Carrefour to intensively educate the public on the benefits and values of a product that contains certified sustainable palm oil.”

Carrefour has pledges to achieve 100% Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO) by 2015 and has been purchasing RSPO GreenPalm certificates for its own-brand products sold in France since 2010.
