Moving forward with traceability to plantation
At the end of 2016, Cargill achieved a global combined average traceability to mill of 93 percent (97 percent of the kernel and 93 percent of palm). Combined traceability to plantation was 39 percent (18 percent of kernel and 42 percent of palm).
We launched our Palm Sustainability Dashboard which covers supply chain map, traceability information, sustainability progress, grievance updates and variety of other sustainability resources.
Traceability to the mill by market
Traceability to the plantation by market
Traceability Notes: Traceability to plantation is defined as known information about the fresh fruit bunch suppliers; estates (names, parent company name, GPS coordinates/addresses, percentage volumes, certification status), dealers (names, percentage volumes) and smallholders (number of smallholders, percentage volumes, certification status). RSPO segregated oil also fits into this category of fully traceable to plantation. The traceability data included in this report should be considered estimates and the percentages were calculated based on self-declarations by our suppliers. The data covers what we physically delivered and processed. Cargill is cooperating with industry partners to develop verification and reporting of traceability information.
Malaysia origin data covers all exports, while domestic sales are taken into account under Malaysia domestic. "Other markets" includes palm and kernel product shipped to Latin America (those countries not individually indicated already), UK, Central and Eastern Europe (the Caucasus), West and North Africa, Middle East, central and South Asia, Asia Pacific, and the Pacific rim. In some cases, palm and/or kernel products may be bought from another supplier who has a "No Deforestation" policy and is mapping their supply chain but is unwilling to share their data. We are proactively engaging these suppliers to address this issue. In the absence of substantive progress, some sourcing relationships may be considered. We will do this in a transparent manner.
