Nestle will cut off palm oil suppliers who destroy the rainforest

Date : 18th May 2010, Source : The Telegraph (UK)



Nestle has announced it will stop buying palm oil from suppliers which are contributing to the destruction of the rainforests. Nestle said it would identify and exclude from its supply chain companies ''owning or managing high risk plantations or farms linked to deforestation'', a move which was welcomed by environmental campaigners. Greenpeace launched a campaign two months ago warning that palm oil used by the grocery giant for products such as Kit Kat was contributing to the destruction of the rainforest home of the world's remaining orangutans.
