PepsiCo Adopts Comprehensive Shift in Approach to Palm Oil

PepsiCo Inc., the world’s second-largest food and beverage company, has announced the adoption of a comprehensive palm oil sourcing policy and committed to a broad set of actions aimed at ensuring the palm oil in its supply chain will not contain deforestation, peatland destruction, or human and labor rights abuses. PepsiCo’s shift on palm oil is the result of a six-years long public campaign and positions it as a front runner amongst its peers, signaling to the industry that responsible palm oil production must be achieved.
