Orang-utans are facing extinction due to the unsustainable production of palm oil, an ingredient in around half of all supermarket products.

Help fight for a future where any palm oil in Australian supermarkets is clearly labelled and is only 100% Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO) - produced in a way that aims to protect the last remaining habitat for wildlife and preserve the livelihoods of producers.

In July this year Health Ministers across Australasia will be discussing if oils should be clearly labelled on our food products. This will uncover the true oils in food products and will no longer hide them under generic vegetable oil.

2015 is also the year that Australian food manufacturers have committed to making the switch to Certified Sustainable Palm Oil. Head to the Zoopermarket today and join the 20,000 emails being sent to manufacturers and make sure they deliver on their commitment. 

You can uncover the truth about palm oil in your favourite brands and help save wild orang-utans.
