Producers of consumer products

Some producers of consumer products are making important contributions to creating sustainable and inclusive palm oil supply chains. Below we highlight a example.

Beyond buying RSPO certified material, Henkel invests in smallholder projects ensuring the production of a volume similar to the volume they use. So far they have supported 30.000 farmers with better practices.


Henkel operates worldwide with leading brands in three business areas: Adhesive Technologies, Beauty Care, and Laundry & Home Care. The company currently supports seven initiatives overall in Colombia, Ghana, Honduras, Indonesia, Mexico, Nicaragua and Nigeria. To date, about 30,000 smallholders have been reached on about 300,000 hectares under cultivation.

Building on these achievements Henkel has developed a roadmap of further projects for the period of 2021-2025. In Nigeria for example, there is no demand for certified palm oil yet and import seems to be inefficient. Together they decided to add a replanting project on top of their current activities where yields are to be expected to increase by 50% within three years only.
