Palm Oil
Boulder, CO—Natural Habitats, through its sustainability initiative/movement Palm Done Right, announced the release Palm Positive+, A Reference Guide. The reference guide, now available for download and in hardcopy, was created to dispel health myths, promote supply chain transparency, profile the people behind sustainable palm, and educate on this ingredient.  
 
The guide details the history of palm oil and the timeline of sustainability within the industry, plus offers information on health benefits, consumer attitudes toward palm oil, and the methodology behind sustainable palm farming. Natural Habitats noted that the guide details the many benefits of the regenerative practices behind organic palm, including helping increase plant biodiversity and sustain healthy soil even in turbulent conditions. 
 
“Our Palm Positive+ guide was created with every audience in mind, from food manufacturers to retailers and consumers,” said Monique van Wijnbergen, Sustainability and Corporate Communication Director at Natural Habitats, in a press release. “Our goal is to continue our mission of educating the public on the benefits behind organic and sustainable palm oil. We want to show another perspective and demystify some of the simplified reasoning around the complex topic of palm oil.”
