Communities across the UK are following in our footsteps to make their towns, cities and even counties Sustainable Palm Oil Communities!
At the end of 2022, we are celebrating many successes from all the SPO Communities committed to encouraging their towns, cities and even counties to use sustainable palm oil!
Dorset have been steaming ahead with their project, receiving awards nominations, appearing on the radio and signing up new champions. They now have 14 champions as well as a further 33 business pledged to become champions. They even signed up Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, Founder – the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace, as their project ambassador!
In September, a new SPO community led by the fantastic team at The Deep, was launched in Hull & East Riding of Yorkshire. The launch event attracted interest from local businesses as well as BBC Radio Humberside!
Newquay Zoo have also relaunched the SPO Community project for Newquay, and already have 13 businesses committed to joining!
We’re looking forward to many more communities signing up in 2023, including North Devon and Blackpool. Watch this space…
