Initiative for responsible production of carnauba wax

Initiative for responsible production of carnauba wax

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.
