No more RSPO certification = no more excuses: it’s time to cut ties with Indofood!
Indofood is guilty of worker exploitation, rainforest destruction, and habitat loss and the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) has terminated its sustainability certification.¹
That’s bad news for Indofood’s business partners and lenders PepsiCo, Yum! Brands, Citigroup, Mizuho, Mitsubishi UFJ (MUFG), SMBC Group, Rabobank and Standard Chartered. They can't pretend that Indofood is sustainable.
It’s time to let these companies know: we seeeee you! Call on these buyers and banks to STOP doing business with Indofood until it cleans up its act.
To Indofood’s business partners:
Indofood’s track record keeps getting worse and worse. In the latest turn of events, the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) terminated Indofood’s sustainability certificates and membership. Indofood is guilty of worker exploitation, rainforest destruction and habitat loss, and now it has no “sustainability” claims to hide behind.
It is far past time that your company end all business relationships with this bad actor until it cleans up its act.
Other companies — including Musim Mas, Cargill, Fuji Oil, Hershey’s, Kellogg’s, General Mills, Unilever, and Mars — have cut Indofood from their supply chains. Joint venture partners Nestlé and Wilmar have ended their relationship with Indofood, and banks like BNP Paribas stopped financing the company's palm oil operations.
You must act immediately — cut all ties to Indofood and send a clear market signal that the company must change. There is no time for more delays. End all business with Indofood until it stops exploiting workers and destroying forests.
