We at Alternative Baking Company, Inc.® are proud to announce that starting August 26, 2013, all our cookies are now being made with new palm oil. We have paired up with a company that supplies us with palm oil from Belém, Pará, Brazil that is:
- RSPO Certified/sustainable,
- certified organic,
- Fair Trade,
- GMO-free, and
We have listened to our consumers’ concerns regarding our use of palm oil and are now striving to do our part in preserving the rainforests and nurturing the natural habitat of orangutans and other creatures; in preventing pollution, deforestation, and reduced biodiversity brought on by the destruction of plantations; and in respecting the land belonging to indigenous people.
This shift ensures that our company continues to provide gourmet-quality vegan cookies while also taking care of our environment. We hope you will continue to enjoy our cookies.
