General Mills statement on palm oil supplier
General Mills takes very seriously the suspension of certification from the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) of one of our suppliers, IOI.
We have been transitioning our palm oil purchases to other RSPO-certified suppliers since April. As of the end August 2016, we will no longer be purchasing any palm oil from this supplier.
Reinstatement as a supplier will depend on a credible action plan in line with our policy and RSPO recertification.
We also urge IOI to withdraw their litigation against the RSPO.
