The palm nut is a most remarkable fruit and its oil is used in a huge variety of industries throughout the world. DAABON is committed to demonstrate it can be grown sustainably.
Who We Are
DAABON is a 100 year old family-owned company which has been growing and producing organic and sustainable crops for more than two generations. We are one of Colombia's largest producers of a wide range of sustainable and high-quality crops and ingredients for many of the products that Britain uses every day.
What We Do
“How we produce food affects the health of our environment and the communities where we operate. Food should not be a threat to sustainability, instead it should add value to the entire supply chain and the planet we live in."
Manuel Davila DAABON Group CEO
From the soil to the market
From baking to frying, spreadable to shortenings, Palm Oil is a vital ingredient in countless food and cooking products in every shopping basket, home and kitchen throughout the UK.
“Better Ingredients – delivering more” That is our brand promise. Our definition of “more” goes beyond a promise; it stands for our commitment to add value to the environment, our communities, partners, customers and the future generations.
In many parts of the world, the palm is not grown sustainably or ethically. This has led to an increasingly negative preception of palm oil and it’s many by-products.

Cultivate Collaborate Transform
DAABON are based in the beautiful Santa Marta region, flanked by mountains and rainforest, it is one of the most biodiverse regions in the World. We are proud caretakers of this natural heritage and it defines our commitment to add value to the environment, our communities, partners, customers and to protect this priceless resource for future generations.
As part of our commitment to sustainability, DAABON’s operations are completely deforestation-free. We only farm on land that has been previously cleared, and we never clear or cultivate peatlands, the natural carbon sinks that absorb massive amounts of CO2.
We are a family company, founded on principles of solidarity and responsibility. In 1999 we started "Las Alianzas" (The Alliances), a partnership program for peace and economic prosperity in our farming communities.
DAABON supports the Amsterdam Declaration on Deforestation and the Amsterdam Declaration on Sustainable Palm Oil. The group has been working to the highest standards for over 100 years.
