Avon becomes a TFT member
News Mar 22, 2017

Avon Products, Inc. has become TFT’s most recent palm oil member. Founded in 1886, Avon is a leading global direct seller of cosmetics. We are happy to work with a company that has integrity and respect as part of its core values. We will work with Avon to implement its Palm Oil Promise, in which Avon commits to working with its supply chain to source palm oil and its derivatives from suppliers who have not contributed to deforestation or exploitation of people and communities.

TFT and Avon will begin this process by working together to map Avon’s palm derivatives supply chain to various key milestones. Initial focus will be on mapping Avon’s top ten suppliers’ supply chains to the level of first importer—companies that are generally the link between countries of palm oil production (e.g. Indonesia or Malaysia) and countries of manufacturing, like Brazil, for example.

TFT’s work with Avon will help to increase visibility in complicated palm derivatives supply chains. Together, TFT and Avon will work to ensure that Avon’s values of sourcing palm oil free from deforestation and exploitation are shared upstream at the level of production.
