…fats and oils are a food staple that is vital for a well-balanced and sustainable diet, and our planet desperately needs to find a way to source those safely and sustainably so that we can move forward in providing enough food for the whole world. Palm oil production represents one of the best performing supply chains regarding oils, and just 10% of land dedicated to palm oil production accounts for 35% of all vegetable oils produced. Palm oil is the fourth source of calories available to humanity, is nutritionally rich and supply chains that are held to higher standards can produce it in an extremely efficient manner.
What does all this tell us? It tells us that there is a desperate need for tools, technology (especially big data and artificial intelligence) and experts working together, wherein the interconnection of systems is placed at the forefront. Thus we can give concrete answers regarding both the risks and benefits of the foods that people eat daily right across the world. And that could save us, and our planet.
