On 7 March 2013, the Belgian Alliance for Sustainable Palm Oil (BASP) issued a press release to announce that DETIC, the Belgium-Luxembourg industry association for producers and distributors of cosmetics, detergents, cleaning products, adhesives, sealants, biocides and related products, has joined BASP. Members of the Belgian Alliance, formed in 2012 by the food industry, are committed to only source sustainable palm oil by 2015. After the FEED sector in May 2012,  DETIC is the first non-food actor to join the Alliance. Philippe Thiry, President of BASP, is delighted to welcome DETIC on board and declared that the more sectors join the Belgian Alliance down the palm oil supply stream, the more efficient and impactful the Alliance will be.
