Mission and Values
KLK Oleo is committed to the same set of values that have made Acme-Hardesty a leading oleochemical supplier. The company’s vision includes “growing to be the most trusted global partner in oleo-based products and solutions, thus enriching human lives in a sustainable manner every day.” This is supported by a core set of values that includes integrity, loyalty, humility, team spirit, results-oriented performance and innovation.
Moving Towards a Sustainable Future
As a prominent chemical supplier, KLK Oleo is a leading innovator in sustainability and corporate social responsibility. The company is committed to improving both environmental and social conditions in every community it works in.
Together with its parent company, KLK Oleo employs a vertically integrated business model in which every product and ingredient can be traced back to its source. Such granular control over the supply chain ensures that fair labor practices are enforced and that palm oil is harvested in an environmentally responsible manner. The result is a finished product with integrity — one that helps build communities and a more sustainable future.

Like Acme-Hardesty, KLK Oleo is a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), an industry organization that certifies palm oil producers and advocates for more responsible land stewardship and labor practices. KLK Oleo is also ISO-certified for quality management (9001:2008), environmental management (14001:2004) and occupational health and safety (18001:2007).
These are measureable, scalable management standards based on a cycle of continuous improvement.
