Lead the way ALDI, Label Palm Oil & be the first supermarket chain to use 100% segregated CSPO
ALDI private-label goods containing palm oil are labelled as "vegetable oil".
Australian consumers deserve the right to know what products contain Palm Oil and Palm Oil derivatives.
Currently it is not mandatory in Australia to truthfully label Palm Oil, allowing it to be hidden under Vegetable Oil and other scientific names.
I am urging you to lead the way by becoming the first Supermarket chain in Australia to use 100% segregated Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO) by 1st Jan 2014, this supply chain is readily available.
I would like to see the official trademarked RSPO certification logo placed on all your products that contain Palm Oil. I will support ALDI for taking this vital step to assist the sustainable production of Palm Oil.
I also request that all ALDI private label products containing Palm Oil and palm oil derivatives are labelled as "Palm Oil" rather then hiding behind "Vegetable Oil".
