Why companies must continue to source from ‘high-risk’ countries

Niels Wielaard and Ian Welsh
Niels Wielaard, founder of Satelligence, and Ian Welsh, talk about traceability-to-plantation innovation in palm oil and cocoa supply chains. Wielaard explains why appreciating the complexity of the challenges is important and, crucially, why companies should not shift from sourcing from higher risk countries as a reaction to EU and other due diligence legislation. This could, he argues, simply shift problems to lower risk countries.
