palm oil - rspo certified
As our pastry is vegan, we don’t use animal fats to bind our dough. Our options are currently palm, avocado or coconut oil. Of the three, palm oil is actually the most efficient to produce and puts the least strain on land and resources. Until we can find an alternative, we will use the most ethical and sustainable palm oil possible, certified to the highest standard by the RSPO. This means it is fully traceable and is grown on assigned land that will not cause any further deforestation. You can find out more about our use of sustainable palm oil here.
Our supplier of palm oil is the Daabon Group in Colombia and they were globally recognised as one of the most sustainable and ethical in their palm practices as per SPOTT’s ESG Policy Transparency Assessment:
organic - soil association verified
All our products meet high organic standards all the way through their food supply chain, from field to fork. Being certified organic also means our food is 100% GMO and preservative free.
When you buy Clive’s you buy safe in the knowledge that our food safety standards have the biggest thumbs up from the industry body with an A+ rating, as well as local trading standards and environmental health officers.
vegan society approved
All our products proudly display the vegan trademark as they are free from animal-derived ingredients, show absolutely no cross-contamination during production, are GMO-free and are never tested on animals.
We keep our environmental impact low through:
- Local sourcing of ingredients
- Recycling tins, cardboard, plastic, film and vegetable peelings
- Using 100% recyclable packaging
- Using a heat recovery unit to heat hot water using the waste heat generated from our chillers and freezers.
