It’s taken us two years, but this is exactly the moment we’ve been working so hard for: One of the world’s largest palm oil traders has just cut ties with Conflict Palm Oil producer Indofood.
In these past two years, with YOUR help, we’ve convinced global brands like Hershey’s, Kellogg’s, General Mills, Unilever, and Mars to pledge to use responsible palm oil and drop Indofood.
Our strategy all along has been to shift the entire palm oil industry by creating economic pressure from consumers like you.
This announcement by Musim Mas, the third largest palm oil trader in the world, proves that we’re making a major difference across the industry.
First, I want to thank you Clint, because we couldn’t have achieved this major milestone without you!
In the coming weeks, the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) will decide the fate of Indofood’s “sustainable palm oil” label. Let’s make sure that the RSPO and all of Indofood’s business partners hear from us first. Our goal is to deliver more than 15,000 letters in the coming weeks. Will you help us Clint?
Together with our partners, we’ve spent years documenting the human rights abuses and rainforest destruction by Indofood. There’s no excuse to be in business with this destructive company.
There’s no price you can put on basic human rights and the last remaining habitat for species found nowhere else on Earth.
Together, we will shift the palm oil industry to protect rainforest habitat and the rights of workers. After two years, the dominoes are falling, and we could win a major victory for the people, orangutans, elephants and tigers who have been hurt by Conflict Palm Oil.
I hope you’ll be a part of it.
