On Friday April 28, the Ministerial Forum on Food Regulation met to consider recommendations to change food labelling laws that would see palm oil clearly labelled in Australia once and for all.
The group of ministers from across Australia and New Zealand decided to once again delay the decision until a future meeting.
You, our zoo community, have been instrumental in speaking out on behalf of orang-utans. Over 398,000 people have publicly supported our Don't Palm Us Off campaign, and our consumer research shows that 95% of Australians support mandatory labelling of palm oil. Galaxy 2017
We are urging people from all over Australia and New Zealand to join us and tell these decision makers that regulated (mandatory) labelling of palm oil is the only acceptable option.
