Over the last decades, food Safety has been a growing concern among people. Presence of pesticides or other chemicals in feed and food, can threaten its quality and safety. Organic standards and certifications guarantee that crops are grown without the use of any type of pesticides, GMOs or synthetic fertilizers, and at the same time ensure farmers implement production practices that protect the environment, and their workers.
Farmers have been growing food with agricultural techniques, fertilization, and pesticides for hundreds of years. Some products claim to be the ultimate solution for production yield intensification. Companies develop these products using genetically modified organisms, chemicals and synthetic ingredients, which are considered harmful for human beings, and responsible for cancers, mutations, and severe diseases.

Traceability is a risk- management tool, through which authorities can identify and recall unsafe products from the market. Certified organic food often travel great distances before reaching consumers. Through traceability tool sustainability standards ensure that good social and environmental practices certified at production are accounted for by the time a label is placed on the shelf and is sold to an end user.
At Natural Habitats group we assure our customers with full traceability to our sustainable palm oil. We believe in complete ‘farmer to fork’ transparency of our entire supply chain so that our customers are assured that their product truly comes from sustainable sources. At Natural Habitats, together with our partners, we control all processes from production, collection from partnering farmers, processing, distribution to product-marketing as we believe it to be essential to have full control over all business processes to guarantee a reliable supply of products and high service levels.
Traceability holds a great importance for the sustainability purposes; it is an effective tool for advancing the objectives of sustainability. This strengthens credibility for sellers and buyers allowing producers to negotiate a fair price for their crop and at the same time allows them to be in control of farm developments and increase production efficiency. It is been said that there is no sustainability without traceability; well that is a separate topic of discussion.
Traceability still has a long way to go before it is used widely and becomes an integral part of sustainable supply chain management. At present, only limited number of companies is producing traceable commodities. Natural Habitats is proud to be part of this number with a fully traceable palm oil supply chain
