Kevin Rudd please visit Indonesia and look at the devastating effects of importing uncertified, unsustainable Palm Oil into Australia. We ask he visit the NGO’s that are trying to save endangered species and their habitat. There are currently no regulations regarding import of this oil which is widely used in Australian products.

We ask you Mr Rudd to see the result of unregulated, unsustainable, uncertified Palm Oil that is being imported into Australia. As a nation we are contributing to this devastation. Brands are importing Palm Oil to use in Foods and the manufacturing of other products. Currently, brands refusing to import certified sustainable Palm Oil even though the supply chain for CSPO is available.
