Palm Oil is Vital
At a recent event in London organised by RSPO, the conservation experts from Chester Zoo, an organisation at the forefront of conservation in the palm producing regions of Malaysia, unanimously confirmed that Palm Oil should continue to be used for food production and frying.
Their message is united and powerful:
“The solution is not to stop using palm. Other crops cannot pick up the short fall. The solution is to use certified sustainable palm oil.” ]People & Communities
The story of the plight of the orangutan and the loss of rainforest through deforestation is what we read about and see all over social media. The plight of people, especially forced child labour and low or unpaid wages to the communities that support the growth, harvest and production is ignored.
It is only through working with plantations and growers, supporting them and helping them that sustainable palm oil is achievable. If we all walk away the situation will become worse, both for the environment, wildlife and people.
