According to a coalition of environmental and conservation groups it's time for food manufacturers to add palm oil to the label in Europe, instead of currently being listed as simply, and erroneously (palm kernels are fruits), 'vegetable oil'

Ban palm oil from the food chain altogether - and do the same for GM crops - everyone will feel better because we will be doing something positive for the planet and wildlife.

Good. At present, if the label says "vegetable oil" I don't buy it just in case it is Palm Oil. Labeling the things with P.O. would make it easier to selectively boycott it.
