Danisco now offers sustainable emulsifiers that are based on sustainable palm oil or sustainable palm kernel oil. They may be used to bind oil and water in food. Danisco belongs to the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, a not-for-profit association that has prepared criteria for sustainable oil production.

"In step with the general focus on environmental and ethical issues, this opens up new opportunities for our customers to meet consumer demand for sustainable foods," said Martin Klavs Nielsen, executive vice-president, Emulsifiers, for Danisco.
