Griesson - de Beukelaer has been active in the field of sustainability for many years, in order to safeguard and maintain the natural resources available to present and future generations.
UTZ certified cocoa
As a family business we naturally support sustainable thinking and actions. In order to simultaneously guarantee the highest quality, we buy 100%
UTZ certified cocoa for all of our branded products. This promotes socially and environmentally friendly cocoa farming.
Eggs from alternative farming methods
We are aware of our responsibility towards nature and therefore attach great importance to the origin of our raw ingredients. Since early 2007 we have only used barn eggs. For this, in 2009 Griesson – de Beukelaer received a "Golden Egg" animal welfare award from the international animal protection organisation "Compassion in World Farming."
Palm from sustainable sources
Griesson - de Beukelaer supports the use of palm oil and palm kernel fat from sustainable sources. Since 29 March 2010 we have been a member of the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) and supported the cultivation and use of certified palm fat. The RSPO is the best-known certification system for sustainable palm fat (Our RSPO certification). Our goal is to use 100% RSPO-certified palm kernel oil and derivatives therefrom by the end of 2015, where possible from sustainable, segregated sources. All raw ingredients containing palm (kernel) oil processed directly by us have been 100% RSPO certified since early 2015, 35% of which are produced in accordance with the segregation model.

Use of organic raw ingredients
For our DeBeukelaer Cereola Haferflakes we use only selected natural ingredients from organic farms and do not add any flavourings or flavour enhancers during production. As a result, this certified organic product carries the European Union's Bio-Siegel.
