IGA Exclusive Brands & Sustainability
Environmental organizations in the U.S. and around the world have recently called into question the forestry practices of Asia Pulp & Paper (APP), a leading pulp and paper company that sources fiber from the Indonesia rainforest, among other places. IGA USA was first made aware of issues involving APP when last August IGA Australia--taking into consideration the significant display of public concern regarding the potential negative impact on endangered species in the Indonesian rainforest--stopped sourcing products from APP to make its IGA brand toilet paper. Like IGA Australia, IGA USA is committed to safe and responsible sourcing of fiber for our IGA store brand tissue and paper products. As such we want to assure our shoppers that here in the U.S. no IGA Exclusive Brand products have been or will be sourced from Asia Pulp & Paper.
