Food manufacturers are still allowed to hide palm oil on their labels.
Without clear labels you dont know if you're contributing to the deaths of over 1,000 orangutans a year as their habitat, and that of Sumatran Elephants and Tigers is destroyed through unsustainable palm oil production.
In late November 2016 the decision to provide consumers with clear labelling of palm oil was delayed by the Australian and New Zealand Ministerial Forum on Food Regulation.
This is a disappointing result for the 84% of Australians and 92% of New Zealand consumers who support palm oil labelling and fails to give consumers the right to know what is in their food.
Leadership is possible. The Victorian Government has announced they support mandatory labelling of palm oil.
Tell the other Ministers that you want transparent labelling.
You can help save wild orang-utans.
The Sumatran Tiger is critically endangered with around 240 remaining in the wild. Despite hunting being illegal, tigers continue to be killed by poachers. You can help us fight extinction by adopting the Sumatran Tiger.
