Global Brands Caught Sourcing Illegal Palm Oil From Within Protected Wildlife Reserve

by | Oct 2, 2019 | Uncategorized

Palmoil, grown illegally at the expense of the protected peat forests of Rawa Singkil Wildlife Reserve in Indonesia’s world-renowned #Leuser Ecosystem, is being used to manufacture snack foods sold across the world by #Unilever, #Nestlé, #PepsiCo, #Mondelēz, #GeneralMills, #Kellogg’s, #Mars and #Hershey’s.⠀ ⠀

“The evidence resulting from our investigations is unequivocal,” said Gemma Tillack with Rainforest Action Network. “Despite the fact that these big-name brands publicly promised to end deforestation for snack foods years ago, they are still sourcing from the companies driving palm oil plantation expansion into the heart of one of the highest priority conservation landscapes for addressing the climate crisis and wildlife extinction on the planet: the lowland peat forests of the Leuser Ecosystem.”⠀
