Demand Candymakers Cut Conflict Palm Oil

How’s this for a scary story: candymakers Nestlé, Mars, Hershey’s, and Mondelēz are still sourcing Conflict Palm Oil from PT SPS II, a company our field investigators, and government officials, have found illegally destroying habitat and rainforest in the orangutan capital of the world time and time again.

Chocolate doesn't taste like rainforest destruction or orangutan extinction. That's why it’s so easy for folks to forget what’s in it. And for these four candymakers, millions of dollars in profits makes it easy for them to ignore that this holiday is fueled by something very rotten.

We don’t want to stop trick-or-treaters — they are far too adorable — but we can call on Nestlé, Mars, Hershey’s, and Mondelēz to cut ties with this bad actor before it can do any more damage. Demand that the candy our children are filling their baskets with doesn’t come with the curse of Conflict Palm Oil.
