Podcast Trailer


The Sustainable Commodities Podcast tackles everything from the palm oil paradox to the cocoa conundrum.


The podcast series will raise awareness about the importance of sustainable commodities like palm oil, soya, cocoa and coffee and shine a light on good work done with sustainable commodities worldwide.

The podcast is a joint venture between sustainability marketing agency One Nine Nine and sustainable palm oil experts Judith Murdoch Associates.

Episode 1


How the incoming EU Deforestation Regulation will impact businesses and sustainable commodities?

We discuss the incoming EU Deforestation Regulation. The incoming 2024 legislation means that businesses importing, exporting or trading coffee, soy, wood, rubber, cattle and palm oil in the EU must demonstrate that these commodities haven’t come from land deforested since 2020. And it requires that there's full traceability for those commodities. The podcast discusses how this will be implemented and what it means for sustainable commodities.
