About Palm Oil
Palm oil is the most widely used oil in the world and found in many product categories including food, household cleaners, personal care and cosmetics. According to the not-for-profit organisation, palm oil may be found in more than 50% of products on supermarket shelves under a huge number of names which do not always include the word ‘palm’ making it difficult for consumers to know what is in the products they buy.
The Palm Oil Free Certification Accreditation Programme (POFCAP) is the first International Palm Oil Free Certification Trademark and Certification Programme in the World. POFCAP, an Australian founded certification trademark has, since launch, been granted approval by the relevant government authorities of 12 countries to certify products in those countries with a further five countries currently pending. Since its inception in late 2017, it has assessed over 800 products and Certified them ‘Palm Oil Free’ from soaps made in Ireland & Australia, skincare from Scotland, American snacks, spices and nut butters, Isle of Man Christmas puddings, pet food, cleaning products, a textile company from Australia, an entire restaurant menu at El Piano in England to name a few. A full list is on the POCAP website.
