ExcelVite, the world’s leading and largest producer of branded nutraceutical ingredients (EVNol, EVNol SupraBio and EVTene) from sustainable palm oil is proud to announce that they have obtained the RSPO Supply Chain Certificate (RSPO-SC) after a successful compliance audit by Standard and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia.
After achieving the Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil Supply Chain Certification Standard (MSPO SCCS) in June 2019, the team immediately started to work on identifying requirement gaps between RSPO-SC and MSPO SCCS and took appropriate actions to bridge these gaps in order to ensure compliance with the RSPO Supply Chain Certification Standard.
While both standards aim at promoting the growth and usage of certified sustainable palm oil and palm products, the main difference between MSPO and RSPO lies in the former being a nationally recognized standard that aligns with Malaysian law; whereas RSPO (established in 2004) is the main certification standard for sustainable palm oil and palm products that has a more worldwide recognition.
Achieving RSPO-SC (mass balance) certification meant that ExcelVite is recognized internationally for its commitment and practices in using only RSPO-certified sustainable palm oil, hence, improving the company’s competitive advantage especially in addressing customers’ needs and expectations on sustainability commitment. It also underscores the company’s strong commitment towards ensuring that the entire value chain and production of palm oil is sustainably produced.
“As a leading PIC/S GMP-certified palm phytonutrient producer, we are proud to achieve RSPO-SC certification that underscores our commitment in sustainability responsibilities while providing high quality products to our customers worldwide. With strong commitment from the management, we hope to do more for the local environment, with positive social and economic impact to local smallholders in Malaysia,” said ExcelVite Senior QA Manager and Sustainability Committee Head YT Chan.
“Our Sustainability Initiative put in place a few years ago has borne fruits. We are pleased to have passed the audit and achieved this RSPO-SC Certification Standard that ensures that our entire value chain and production of palm-based products are sustainable. We will continue to promote the awareness of certified sustainable palm oil to our existing and potential customers with the aim to support them as they, with peace of mind, continue to use ExcelVite’s branded flagship products, EVNol and EVNol SupraBio (patented and bioenhanced full spectrum palm tocotrienol complex) as well as EVTene (natural palm mixed carotene complex),” said ExcelVite CEO WH Leong.
Mr. WH Leong is the CEO of ExcelVite, the largest and only GMP-certified producer of tocotrienol and mixed-carotene complex. Excelvite supplies these phytonutrients to dietary supplements, functional food/drinks and cosmetic companies worldwide.
