OUR PALM OIL POLICY
Froneri is committed to sourcing all our palm oil responsibly and sustainably. As a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) we support and endorse its Principles and Criteria. We are committed to ensuring that all of the palm oil contained in our products is responsibly and sustainably sourced. Our aim is to have all of our palm oil sustainably sourced by 2022.
SINGLE USE PLASTIC REDUCTION
Froneri is committed to eliminate single use plastic spoons, straws, cups and lids including, plastic novelties in kids products. As at 18/2/20 we have already reduced our single use plastics by 200 million units! We will continue to make this a priority in our business moving forward with the aim that by 2025 we are using 100% recyclable or reusable packaging.
WE USE SUSTAINABLE STICKS
FRONERI’s sticks are sourced from a supplier who is certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council®) or PEFC (The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) depending on the country. This means the original logs the sticks come from are traceable to sustainably managed forests and 100% compliant with regulations that ensure respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards.
WE SAVE WILD CATS
Did you know there are only 3900 tigers left in the world? Our new plant based ice cream RØAR is on a mission to change that via their partnership with Panthera and the ‘TIGERS FOREVER’ program which has the aim of increasing tiger numbers by at least 50% over a ten-year period.

NUII P.E.A.C.E PROJECT 2020 (PEOPLE & ELEPHANTS AMICABLY CO-EXISTING)
Each year NUII is committed to supporting biodiversity projects in wild places where we can make a real difference to the lives of humans & animals as well as their environment. Our first project is the NUII PEACE project (People & Elephants Amicably Co-Existing) which will provide Co-Existence Education by building an Education Centre run by locals which schools, communities, elephant guards and field guides can learn about elephant behavior and how to protect themselves and their livelihoods during elephant encounters. As well as 20 Solar Water Pumps to increase FREE access to water for both the community and the elephants. Currently these are diesel fueled which require payment to have access to water.
MOVENPICK OF SWITZERLAND STOPS PLASTIC ON SINGLE-USE ITEMS IN PARLOURS
After seeing plastic spoons being disposed of near beaches, Mövenpick wanted to swap to more natural materials made from a renewable resource that would be compostable in the long-run. As of 2020, Mövenpick will have 5.4 million disposable POS materials per year in plant-based quality. They stopped using plastic spoons and changed ice-cream & drinking cups from petrol-based PE-coating to sugar-cane PE-coating. They no longer use plastic lids on their drinking cups and changed their cone wraps to plant-based barrier paper and keep their fully compostable napkins made from FSC certified wood.
