TEMPORARY CHANGES IN OUR INGREDIENTS

Palm Oil changes

Important note to our valued consumers: Due to the current shortage of some of our ingredients, we have had to do some temporary changes in our recipes.

 

What is changing and why?

At Nestlé Breakfast Cereals, sunflower oil is one of the ingredients we use to deliver the taste and feel of our products that you know and love.

Unfortunately, the current ingredient shortage is having a direct impact on our supply chain, as it is getting more difficult to source some of the raw materials we use in our products, including sunflower oil. Prior to the current war, Ukraine was the world’s largest exporter of sunflower oil, and together, Ukraine & Russia accounted for around 70% of the world’s supply of sunflower oil*[1] .

To ensure that we can deliver breakfast cereals to your morning tables, we have therefore had to find an alternative to sunflower oil in some of our products. In order to ensure we can deliver the same high quality and taste, and to ensure we can source enough oil to keep our productions running, we will have to temporarily switch some of our products from sunflower oil to sustainably sourced palm oil. This switch will not have any impact on the food safety or taste.

 

The products impacted

Some of our products do not contain any sunflower oil and will therefore not be impacted by the change to sustainably sourced palm oil. We are committed to providing transparent information on the recipes of our products to you. For further information on the temporary changes on each specific recipe, please visit our local product pages.

 

Sustainably sourced palm oil

During the temporary change to palm oil, we will ensure that our palm oil is responsibly sourced, by using 100% RSPO Segregated certified palm oil in our products.

The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) is a global, multi-stakeholder initiative on sustainable palm oil. The principal objective of RSPO is to promote the growth and use of sustainable palm oil through co-operation within the supply chain and open dialogue between its stakeholders.

At Nestlé, we are committed to use 100% certified sustainable palm oil by 2023 and have put several initiatives in place to ensure we are sourcing palm oil in the most sustainable way.
