The palm fruit oil used in Barney Butter almond butters comes from Malaysia. Sustainability is a primary concern to both Barney Butter and to our supplier, and we are both members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).
A copy of our RSPO Certification can be viewed and downloaded at http://www.rspo.org/members/925/Barney-Co.-California-LLC. The RSPO is comprised of governments, palm growers, palm oil users, and non-governmental organizations such as the World Wildlife Fund. The goal of the RSPO is the preservation of the natural environment in a sustainable way that also permits reasonable growth of palm oil plantations that support local populations. For more information about the RSPO please visit their website at www.rspo.org. At Barney Butter we are always on a quest to find a 100% sustainable palm fruit oil that works with our almond butters without affecting the taste or texture.
