New Britain Oils to build world's first certified sustainable palm oil plant in Liverpool

http://www.srg.co.uk/NewBritainOils.aspx" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">New Britain Oils is to invest around £9m in a new processing facility in Liverpool that will become the world's first supplier of certified sustainable palm oil for the bakery and food service sectors.

Bakery fats account for 40% of overall demand for palm oil in the UK but only a small proportion is currently made from traceable, certified oil that does not devastate the environment and threaten the future of endangered species such as the orang utan.

The facility, which is expected to come on-stream by spring 2012, will supply margarines and bakery fats for pastries, cakes, shortenings and bread fats using palm oil sourced from Papua New Guinea. It will also offer boxed palm oil for fish and chip shops, restaurants, and small food manufacturers.
