How we work with Avon on Palm Oil
TFT’s work with Avon will initially focus on achieving traceability to the first importer, i.e. to the companies that import palm oil products from countries of production, like Indonesia or Malaysia, to countries of further manufacturing, like Brazil, for example.
Avon’s palm derivatives volumes are relatively spread out through a number of suppliers. As such, TFT and Avon will focus first on engaging Avon’s top 10 suppliers, representing over 70% of their palm-based product volumes.
Once Avon has visibility into the first importers in their supply chain, they will be able to better evaluate the policies and practices of stakeholders able to influence change on the ground. Avon’s work will continue as they subsequently map to the mill level, and identify where their support towards transformation can be best directed.
