The Co-op produces the most delicious plant-based burgers. They are honestly as tasty as the ‘real’ thing! We cook them wrapped in some foil in the oven so they cook in their healthy juices, and then serve in a bun with vegan melted cheese, sliced tomato and some avocado – delicious! Ruff shares in them too (in moderation as they do contain some onions).
Our only concern as a family came from reading the small print. We were not happy to see that the ingredient list included palm oil.
With this in mind, we considered not buying them, until we found an article that was SO reassuring that we had to share it with you – This article shows that the Co-operative Group UK is leading the way on the palm oil buyers scorecard.
Why a Scorecard for Palm Oil? According to the WWF
“In the ten years that have passed since WWF first did a Scorecard, whilst brands have continued to profit from the palm oil industry, the continued occurrence of the burning of forests and peatlands for palm oil expansion is a reminder that their actions still fall short of what is needed to deliver a responsible, sustainable palm oil industry.
As we enter a new decade, there is no greater urgency than now for companies to step up to act immediately. With there being more ways in which brands can support a better industry than ever before, this Scorecard is a timely and much-needed assessment of companies’ actions taken on their own supply chain and beyond to support the wider industry, moving companies from mere risk mitigation for their own supply chain towards being pro-environment and pro-people.”
We feel enormously reassured by this website and will continue to enjoy the Co-op burgers as a family.
