Specialist feed supplements manufacturer Ufac-UK has announced that it has removed palm oil from over 90 percent of its products.
The UK government and commercial organizations have signed an agreement pledging to achieve 100 percent sourcing of "credibly certified sustainable palm oil" by the end of 2015. “We at Ufac-UK have been aware of this situation for several years and have been working towards removing palm oil from the vast majority of our products,” said Martin Smith, Ufac-UK’s national sales manager. “Instead, we focus on using EU-produced oils such as rapeseed and olive oil. We have even dispensed with palm kernel meal preferring, instead, to use materials such as maize cob meal.”
