Palm oil production which is not sustainable is killing thousand of animals, including orangutans in incredibly inhumane ways. Australians should be able to identify foods and products containing this oil to make a choice to support this industry or not.

Guess I better stay with olive oil.

one of the worst things that's happening today is the deforestation of southeast asia....so many animals suffer because of it. it's incredibily sad to think that orangutans could be extinct within 10 years, what beauty and diversity we will lose, all the knowledge we could gain from them will be gone

Noted and signed, SE Asia has to wake up and protect their wild life. And Australia has to wake up and label food properly so we can have a choice, not only palm oil , but also GMO!
