“Cultivation in certified plantations is an important step forward that we support. We are therefore involved in the RSPO initiative promoting sustainable cultivation methods,” says Britta Beer, Capol’s Head of Research and Development.
At the same time, her team developed sunflower oil as a viable alternative. Employees researched and refined the shelf life of sunflower oil for almost three years. In doing so, they made many adaptations and optimized the entire production process: including specially chosen, high-quality supply sources, antioxidant usage; careful logistics and storage, where the oil rarely comes into contact with heat and oxygen. "For the first time, we have succeeded in making sunflower oil- based products an excellent alternative to palm oil-based products that are well received by our customers and diversify the use of resources," says Beer.
