Update 03, November 2018

This update summarises the results of the first ‘proof of concept’ pilot studies and the outcomes of discussions at workshops convened by PepsiCo and Cargill at the RSPO RT in Sabah together with planned next steps.

Three pilot case studies were undertaken, looking at refineries in SE Asia buying directly from mills, a refinery in Europe buying from mills and aggregators and a trader in Europe to explore the pros and cons of implementing the approach further downstream.
