Drive responsible sourcing
Support the sustainable and ethical practices of our suppliers
Act on the palm oil sector:
Cérélia’s Sustainable Palm Oil Charter
Since 2014, Cérélia has been committed to using only sustainable palm oil that meets the highest standards. To meet our demanding requirements, we have decided to create our Cérélia Sustainable Palm Oil Charter.
7 key principles
Oil of known origin
Oil that has not contributed to deforestation or the conversion of peatlands and High Conservation Value areas
Oil that is not produced by slash-and-burn agriculture
Oil produced by growers who respect environmental best practices
Oil that is produced in a manner that upholds the rights of local communities
Oil produced in a manner that upholds human rights and workers’ rights
Oil from a supply chain that includes and support smallholders
ranked 6th by WWF
Since 2009, WWF has established a scorecard system to measure the efforts companies need to ensure that all palm oil they source is 100% certified sustainable.
In 2021, WWF ranked Cérélia in 6th place worldwide among the most committed companies in this field, with a score of 20.8/24.
Acting on the wheat sector and promote soil-friendly farming methods
In France, we have joined the “Pour une agriculture du vivant” movement (For agriculture of the living). This cooperation between pioneer farmers and leaders in the agricultural and food sectors engaged in the agro-ecological transition finds a natural echo in our CSR commitments and our corporate philosophy. Concretely, for Cérélia, this means…
working with short channels
in order to reduce transport and intermediaries.
to support our farming partners towards agro-ecology and improve their soil regeneration index.
Promoting agro-ecological practices
in order to act in favour of soil regeneration, the diversity of cultivated species and ecosystems.
Active research in circular packaging
The challenge concerning the packaging of the future is to innovate to create sustainable packaging taking its end-of-life into account.
Innovation with (RE)SET
In July 2019, we embarked on a (RE)SET open innovation programme on the theme of “Plastic-free Packaging”.
As a result, three flexible plastic-free packaging pilots are currently in development. Our ambition is to offer products in plastic-free packaging by 2025.
Responsible paper packaging
100% of our paper packaging come from responsibly managed forests.
