Palm Oil Free Chocolate, Candy and Confectionery

Palm oil free chocolate and candy

Buying chocolate, candy or lollies as a gift or just want to indulge yourself? Then enjoy your chocolate fix without eating rainforest-destroying palm oil! If you are ever in doubt look for the prefixes: LAUR, STEAR, GYLC and PALM in the ingredients list on packaging – this is most likely palm oil. Another tip is to shop for locally produced chocolate and vegan chocolate (if you happen to be vegan).

Also – cocoa is another highly controversial ingredient linked to deforestation and human rights abuses. Mighty Earth create regular guides profiling (big and small) chocolate brands so you can decide which ones to purchase and which to #Boycott4Wildlife based on cocoa and palm oil.

Guess what @Nestle @CadburyUK I nolonger eat your #chocolate as u cause #deforestation for #palmoil and #cocoa. Stop this right now! Until you do I go #palmoilfree and #Boycott4Wildlife as animals mean more to me than you ever will!

Did you know that palm oil is one of the world’s most destructive crops, as it can only be harvested in tropical rainforest and peatland landscapes where the highest concentration of endangered species live? The majority of palm oil and soy is fed to farm animals that people eat. This is why palm oil is an animal rights issue. And it is for these reasons that palm oil is NOT considered vegan by animal activists. It may be a plant-based, but it is NOT VEGAN. Brands claiming that their products are plant-based AKA vegan but yet still using palm oil are simply greenwashing extinction and ecocide!

Here are some dairy chocolate and vegan dairy-free chocolate without palm oil. This list was created by Mighty Earth and vetted for cocoa sustainability.

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!
