Our focus

The Retailers' Palm Oil Group (RPOG), the only global group of its kind, is a non-competitive coalition of companies who have the common aim of using sustainable palm oil in their products. Our wider ambition is to make the use of sustainable palm oil standard across all relevant supply chains. We trade globally with our head offices predominately based in Europe. 

"To transform markets to make sustainable palm oil the norm"
