While progress has been made in the fight to end the horrific conflict Palm Oil industry, much more needs to be done to save species who are on the brink of extinction as a result.

Palm oil is grown throughout Africa, Asia, North and South America, with an estimated 85% of all palm oil globally produced and exported from Indonesia and Malaysia.

The industry is linked to deforestation, habitat degradation, climate change, and animal cruelty, among many other issues in the countries where it is produced, as the land and forests must be cleared for the development of the oil palm plantations.

As a result of pressure from the animal welfare and environmental community, PepsiCo has announced that it will stop sourcing, both directly and indirectly, from Conflict Palm Oil producer Indofood.

As per a statement by Rainforest Action Network, while this is a “huge step” by PepsiCo, the company is unfortunately still linked to Indofood through a joint partnership.

Together with its partners, Rainforest Action Network has spent years documenting the human rights abuses and rainforest destruction by Indofood.

“The announcements by Musim Mas, the third largest palm oil trader in the world, and PepsiCo, one of the biggest buyers of palm oil in the world, proves that we’re making a major difference across the industry,” noted the organization. “Your calls, your emails, your pressure is making a difference, helping to shift the entire palm oil sector!”

Now, it is time for all of the buyers, business partners, and financiers of Indofood to cut ties with this destructive company.

Send your messages now! Tell RSPO, PepsiCo, Nestlé, Yum! Brands, Wilmar, Rabobank, Standard Chartered, Mizuho, Mitsubishi UFJ, and Sumitomo Mitsui Financial, that it is time to stop certifying, funding, financing, partnering, or doing any other business with Indofood.

A letter is available on the Rainforest Action Network website. It shares the powerful message that, “No more evidence is needed. Only willpower is needed.”

Other companies, including Cargill, Hershey’s, Kellogg’s, General Mills, Unilever and Mars, have also cut Indofood from their supply chains, while banks like Citigroup and BNP Paribas are also stopping financing to the company’s palm oil operations due to human rights and environmental violations.
