All bakery fats in Bako’s own-label Classic range are now made using ethically and sustainably produced palm oils.

The buying group has sourced fully segregated and accredited palm oil and an independent fats processor to produce its boxed bakery fats. It said the move was in response to customer requests.

The reformulated range of fats which includes shortening, cake margarine, pastry margarine and bread fat is similar in nature and performance to previous Bako Classic fats so bakers achieving the same results without changing recipes.
