Using innovative processes found in nature to brew sustainable alternatives to palm oil
C16 was founded with the objective of creating a sustainable, environmentally friendly alternative to conflict palm oil. By offering producers, refiners, traders and consumers of palm oil an opportunity to invest part of their production into bio-based oils and sustainability efforts, their aim is to reduce the environmental footprint of palm oil production and protect precious natural land, wildlife and resources in the process.
THEY'VE DEVELOPED TECHNOLOGY TO BREW A SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVE TO PALM OIL FROM MICROBES.
Their palm oil is sustainable—in fact, it doesn't even involve palm trees. It doesn't cause deforestation, endangering precious animal species, or forcing inhumane labor practices. The result is a world where consumers can enjoy the products they love without worrying about the dangerous practices involved in making them.
Fermentation is a well-proven commercial process that has been used for centuries to convert raw materials into consumable commercial products consumed by billions of people every day. We believe that brewing palm oil like beer is the best and most likely path to developing a truly sustainable palm oil alternative.See more
