Carnauba wax, which is sourced from Carnauba palm in northeastern Brazil, is used as a separating and coating agent for confectionary products such as dragees and fruit gums. The initiative for responsibly-produced carnauba wax supports suppliers in the cultivation areas to improve the situation on-site and to find new ways to cope with social and ecological challenges. It is a declared goal to support responsible production of carnauba wax, take the needs of people into account and at the same time protect the regional biodiversity.
We support this initiative and purchase carnauba wax exclusively from certified members who produce according to UEBT standards (Union for Ethical Bio Trade).
