Third Party Certified Segregated Sustainable Palm Kernel Oil:
Since June 2012, when it first became available, our entire production is being made with third party certified segregated sustainable palm kernel oil. We only buy product which is certified and we have viewed the certificates. While we know there is a common concept out in the market place that all palm kernel oil should be avoided to protect the Orangutans in Indonesian rain forests, we have been instrumental over the past 30 years in applying pressure on the importers and suppliers insisting that sustainable practices should be implemented. We believe the fact certified sustainably grown and processed product is now available is the direct result of such feedback having been exerted on the producers.
It is important that we maintain this dialogue so the practices of the producers will continue to change and the benefits we all seek will come to fruition. To totally ban palm kernel oil use so we exclude ourselves from the market will mean our collective voices will be lost and we will no longer have any input to promote sustainable practices.
We sometimes have representatives from a number of Malaysian and Indonesian manufacturers visit us to ask for our business and this has been a forum for us to pass on the concerns we all have and that there is an expectation that changes should be made to achieve sustainable production. Further we also insist on certification by third parties for both production and transport practices and we only buy from sources that prove this.
We also offer a unique range of confectionery made
juices. These, no added sugar style of
products, are naturally sweetened by pear juice used in their manufacture.
A number of products are also made with minced
dried fruit. The popular fruitballs is a favourite with children and is bought by a number of schools.
We make both the traditional sweetened variety plus a variety without added sugar where we use pear fruit juice as an ingredient
and make use of its sweet characteristics.
We also manufacture, through our sister company, SA Chocolate
Carob, Yoghurt, Soya Carob, Chocolate (milk & dark), Soya Chocolate, Fructose sweetened Soya Chocolate, Milky White, Soya White.
See our BUTTONS section.
These are available as both sweetened and unsweetened buttons suitable for melting, for enrobing or just plain eating.
