Palm oil disaster

Martin Hickman in the Independent provides a handy list of major companies and products using palm oil. This is often labelled simply as 'vegetable oil' and it is driving the destruction of the rainforests, displacing native people and threatening the survival of the orangutan. It is present in dozens of Britain's leading grocery brands. So you could boycott these products unless a sustainable palm oil was used.

Kellogg's (US) Uses palm oil in 50 products, mostly cereal bars but also cereals such as Special K and Crunchy Nut, where it binds together clusters. Does not buy sustainable palm oil.

Cadbury (UK) Pours palm oil into chocolate bars, including Cadbury Dairy Milk, where it is listed as vegetable oil. Uses 40,000 tonnes a year, none certified as sustainable.
