Is Sun-Pat an ethical and sustainable brand? 

Owned by The Hain Celestial Group, Sun-Pat is a popular brand which produces peanut butter. Unfortunately, Sun-Pat has a below benchmark score within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Jams & Spreads sector and cannot yet be classed as an ethical brand. Because of Sun-Pat’s bottom score on the Jams & Spreads Ethical Ratings Table, it is not eligible for Ethical Accreditation.

Would you like to find out how other Sun-Pat rates against other well-known brands within the Ethical Jams & Spreads sector? Visit the Jams & Spreads Ethical Ratings Table. From The Good Shopping Guide’s Ratings Tables, you can learn all about the criteria that a brand must fulfil in order to achieve a top rating.

What does Sun-Pat receive a top rating for?

Due to its lack of negative records, Sun-Pat receives a top rating for the categories of Armaments, Fossil Fuels and Nuclear Power. This reflects that neither Sun-Pat nor its parent company has any involvement in these industries.

In which categories does Sun-Pat receive a bottom rating?

Sun-Pat receives a bottom rating for Palm Oil Free, as its products contain palm oil and its parent company, Hain Celestial, is a known palm oil buyer.

Additionally, as the company does not have any products certified as organic, Sun-Pat receives a bottom rating in the Organic category.

What can Sun-Pat do to improve its score? 

Sun-Pat’s below benchmark score on The Good Shopping Guide’s Jams & Spreads Ethical Ratings Table is the result of an evaluation of multiple ethical criteria.

Although Sun-Pat’s score does not currently meet The Good Shopping Guide’s minimum ethical benchmark in the Ethical Jams & Spreads sector, we still encourage it to get in touch for some advice on how to improve its score and become a more ethical brand.
