26 Sep 2018 --- Brill Inc., a CSM Bakery Solutions company, is now a member of the North American Sustainable Palm Oil Network (NASPON) joining forces with a number of other top companies to reaffirm their commitment to sourcing sustainable palm oil.

In joining NASPON, Brill will unite with more than 30 companies in supporting the organization’s mission to educate, build momentum and assist North American companies in making and delivering on commitments to source sustainable palm oil. NASPON’s roster boasts a number of global leaders including Dunkin Brands, Kellogg, PepsiCo, Kraft Heinz and Nestle.

The decision to join NASPON was a natural next step for Brill, according CSM Bakery Solutions’ (Brill’s parent company) President and CEO Marianne Kirkegaard.

“We certainly recognize the importance of sourcing palm oil in a responsible and sustainable manner as well as the consequences of not doing so,” she said. “Our customers are also taking steps to ensure this happens and expect us to do the same. CSM has supported and been a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) since its inception, so the decision to do the same in North America was an easy one.”

The NASPON was formed in late 2017 by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) as the global organization seeks to accelerate and drive greater collaboration within the North American market.

Brill Inc., a CSM Bakery Solutions company, is a leader in bakery ingredients and products serving retail bakeries and foodservice operators across North America.
