I live and work in Papua New Guinea and coming from a comfortable mainly office based job in the UK to here has been quite a culture shock. In this blog I just want to give people an idea about what I do, where Palm Oil comes from, the people, the land, the weather (there is a lot of weather) and a bit about my life in Papua New Guinea.
The company I work for are certified by the Round table on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) as well as the Sustainable Agriculture Network (SANS) which gives us Rainforest Alliance Certification (this is the green frog you might have noticed on some products like, chocolate, coffee, etc). As far as Palm Oil goes we are the good guys.
I’d also like to say a big thank you to my long suffering other half who has been good enough to proof read and edit my blogs, without her you might wonder if English was actually my first language, she also provided most of the photographs that are actually any good.
