Mars chooses for 1:1:1 model of Unifuji

With its Palm Positive Plan, Mars radically simplifies its supply chain to deliver deforestation-free palm oil.

This progress is made possible by a radical simplification of Mars’ supply chain. They have reduced their mill count from 1500 to fewer than 100 by 2021.

An important example of this is in its supply chain to its Asia-Pacific businesses, where Mars is now sourcing from UniFuji — a partnership between United Plantations and Fuji Oil - which has reduced operations from 780 mills to just 1. This has been achieved through a 1:1:1 model — which means that palm is grown on one plantation, processed through one mill and one refinery before reaching Mars. 

UniFuji is the first refinery in the world to offer this 1:1:1 model and provide full traceability from seed to finished fractions, all RSPO certified from one location and with an energy matrix being fossil fuel free. Together with the world wide refinery network of the Fuji Oil Group, UniFuji is able to deliver final product solutions to customers worldwide.

Fuji Oil Europe is ready to support Unfijui’s revolutionary 1:1:1 model also in Europe.
