Cargill: Keep Slave Labor Out of America’s Food Supply

    1. Petition by

      Rainforest Action Network

Cargill purchases palm oil from plantations that use slave labor —and then distributes that palm oil to hundreds of America’s household food brands.

Environmental and human rights violations by Cargill’s supplier, Kuala Lumpur Kepong (KLK), have implicated Cargill in egregious abuses such as slave labor and illegally logging rainforest on carbon rich peatlands. KLK has also just breached Indonesia’s two year logging moratorium on the very first day it was set to go into effect.

Please take action today to demand that Cargill adopt safeguards that prevent these terrible human rights violations.

      Slavery is FAR FROM DEAD. There are MORE SLAVES NOW, than at any time in History {because of a larger world population}. Yes, there are SLAVES here in the U.S., too -- generally, illegally trafficked immigrants who are kept hidden in homes, factories and farms.
