ORGANIC, SUSTAINABLE AND RESPONSIBLE
Grown on small organic family farms in Ecuador, the Red Palm Oil we source is certified Organic, Non-GMO and Fair Trade. We partner with Natural Habitats™ who ensures that no deforestation or habitat destruction results from the growing or harvesting process.
Natural Habitats™ seeks to empower and support farmers. Committed to the sustainable production of organic and fairly traded products, they also contribute to social development in the community through education and nutrition programs, allocate a percentage of sales to social and environmental stewardship programs, have helped build small health clinics and provided sports uniforms for the local youth.
The region in Ecuador where Natural Habitats™ Organic Red Palm Oil is grown supports numerous small family farms, averaging 10 hectares (about 25 acres), interspersed throughout the regional forests. These subsistence farms were planted many years ago and are now being worked by second and third generation farming families.
Palm oil which is grown in Southeast Asia is associated with the stories of destruction of rainforests and the harming of orangutan habitats. Please note that orangutans do not live in Ecuador and Natural Habitats™ Organic Red Palm Oil does not contribute to deforestation or habitat destruction.
