Woolworths investigates Australia’s sustainable palm oil | Australian Food News


Palm Oil- an ingredient in many food and skin care products- has a huge impact on the environment. The mass deforestation that occurs to harvest it leaves Orangutans without homes and onthe endagered list. Although there is still debate about the ethicality of 'sustainable' palm oil (as the certification is done by those with ties to the palm oil industry), the fact that Woolworths has bought this to our attention has got to be a step in the right direction. I'll do a more in-depth post on palm oil soon!
