Dying for a cookie - Mondelez dirty palm oil sq

According to the website of the global food giant:

‘Mondelēz International is committed to sourcing palm oil sustainably and eradicating deforestation and human rights violations in the palm oil supply. We take this responsibility seriously.’


Despite this virtue signalling, the brand’s supply chain continues to slash and burn 100,000’s of hectares of forests and release mega-tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere, and killing hundreds of endangered species. Once these animals are gone – they are gone for good. See research on Mondelēz’s palm oil sources.

Global brand Mondelez @MDLZ uses “sustainable” #palmoil certified by @RSPOtweets yet this doesn’t stop their #deforestation #ecocide #extinction #illegal #landgrabbing. Join the #Boycott4Wildlife #FightGreenwashing with your wallet!

Mondelez @MDLZ uses so-called “sustainable” @RSPOtweets #palmoil and yet they continue with #deforestation #ecocide #extinction #humanrights abuses #Boycottpalmoil #Boycott4Wildlife #FightGreenwashing with your wallet

Mondelēz makes claims of sustainability including a ‘promise’ to stop deforestation. Promises mean nothing – action is what matters.

The brand has a high ranking on the WWF Scorecard and an RSPO certification. However this high ranking is greenwashing and this mega-brand is purchasing huge amounts of palm oil from mills that are responsible for 44% of all deforestation: Mulia Sawit, Tunas Baru Lampung, Peputra Group and Musirawas

Palm Oil Detectives thinks it is wise to boycott all Mondelēz sub-brands until it has been indepedently verified that they have stopped 100% of their deforestation activities throughout the world.

Research: Palm Oil deforestation and its connection to retail brands

Published by Palm Oil Detectives

Hi, I’m Palm Oil Detective’s Editor in Chief. Palm Oil Detectives is partly a consumer website about palm oil in products and partly an online community for writers, scientists, conservationists, artists and musicians to showcase their work and express their love for endangered species. I have a strong voice for creatures great and small threatened by deforestation. With our collective power we can shift the greed of the retail and industrial agriculture sectors and through strong campaigning we can stop them cutting down forests. Be bold! Be courageous! Join the #Boycott4Wildlife and stand up for the animals with your supermarket choices
