Press Release

Natural Habitats Group, producer of the world's leading organic and sustainable palm oil is honored to be selected as a Regenerative Business Award Honoree by the Regenerative Business Alliance. The 2017 Regenerative Business Prize Global Honoree will be announced on September 25th at an awards dinner in Seattle. This invitation-only event is for business leaders and owners working to advance a field or set of industries through regenerative philosophy and practice. 

“The conventional Palm Oil industry in Asia continues to be a major contributor to carbon being released into the atmosphere which has a significant impact on climate change. At Natural Habitats, we manage a 100% organic supply chain in Ecuador and Sierra Leone, Africa. The farming and processing methods, and conservation efforts to preserve rainforest in these regions proves that producing palm oil can be done without the impact that continues with conflict palm production” says Managing Director, Neil Blomquist. “We are honored to be selected alongside this group of inspirational and devoted companies.” 

Natural Habitats is dedicated to improving our food systems through responsible ingredient sourcing and regenerative agriculture practices. We believe that organic, regenerative farming is the solution to preserving and improving the ecosystems, soil, and biodiversity. Through practices such as intercropping, water preservation, waste management, and land use that works in harmony with nature, we will help reverse climate change and improve our agricultural system at large.
