POI is set to launch official Trade Mark for products
TRADE MARKS CONSUMERS CAN TRUST
POI understands the difficulties for consumers to identifying products that are either palm oil free or contain ethical palm oil supply. We have found many claims within the industry that don't quite ring true. Is the product you are buying really palm oil free? This is often not the case when it comes to personal care products.
POI also recognises the difficulties for consumers to identify products using ethical supply of palm oil or palm derived ingredients. Sadly certified palm oil can still be contributing to deforestation and violating human rights issues. Therefore POI fully endorse The Forest Trust with their Traceable No Deforestation Policies. These policies are extremely stringent and go above and beyond standard certification.
With the assistance of Mojito Creative graphic design. POI now has 2 trade marks for brands and products and you can expect to see those TM's launched very soon.
The 2 trade marks are Palm Oil Free and Traceable No Deforestation Policy.
Both trademarks have been designed to make consumer choice easier and have very stringent policies attached to each TM.
POI will not allow usage of these trade marks without backup documentation and ongoing policy compliance.
Our Traceable No Deforestation Policy TM is backed up with full traceability and tracking of palm oil supply which is implemented by The Forest Trust http://www.tft-forests.org/
If you are a brand and wish to enquire about either of our Trade Marks you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
