Edsential’s Palm Oil Challenge

The sustainable palm oil city project has inspired us to go further and we are in the process of becoming fully certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) as the World’s First Certified Fully Sustainable School Catering Provider. We are really proud that we could make a real contribution to this project and show other caterers that it is possible to make the change. We believe passionately in providing our children and young people with quality, ethical food that helps them be the best they can be.
