  4. The facts about Palm Oil - and why stopping using it is not the answer!

    The facts about Palm Oil - and why stopping using it is not the answer!

    In recent times a lot has written about how bad Palm Oil is, but the truth is that a significant amount of work has been going on by Trade Organisations and Governments to assist farmers, growers, producers and processors to achieve a product which comes from a certified sustainable source. Most recently, Chester Zoo have come out in favour of the continued use of Palm Oil which is sustainable and not to switch to alternative vegetable oils as this would send the problem elsewhere and could have more serious environmental impacts due to more land being required.
