Morning / Afternoon,

             I have been asked to search and find out if we can carry over the suppliers certification logo onto our packaging. About our products, chocolate compound wafers. The chocolate comes from a supplier, the chocolate has Palm Oil in it. Well, lately other companies in the UK, EU and USA are requesting RSPO certification

             Like I mention, I have been asked to see / search out if we can carry over the suppliers certification logo (attached) onto our packaging.

 

             My question can we JUST do that? Do we need written permission? Do we need to get certified ourselves? As I know nothing about RSPO and what is needed to carry the RSPO logo...I have tried contacting them, but no luck reaching anyone...Your help will be much appreciated

The logo is a trademark owned by the RSPO. I believe these are the basic requirements for use:

1) RSPO member

2) Supply Chain Certified

3) ≥95% of palm oil derivatives RSPO certified

4) Granted RSPO trademark licence

 

This guidance document is probably useful initial reading for you: https://www.rspo.org... Guidelines.pdf

A bit like with organic, Fairtrade etc., part of the point of the scheme is maintaining the chain of custody, so requiring all parties in the chain to be certified is a sensible control.

Short answer - NO.

 

Your company would need to be certified and then you put your own seal in accordance with RSPO on your label.

Just curious, do consumers really care if there is a RSPO symbol on the label?

SQF Consultant,

                              I think its more for customs as we had some issues at the borders in the UK, EU as we have been ask to have documentation about palm oil sustainability and documented to back that up.  If we carry / use certified P.Oil..There will be issues internationally...my thoughts..
