The latest revelations from Amnesty International show that Fonterra’s move to buy palm oil feed (PKE) from a single “sustainable” source – Wilmar International - has failed.
Amnesty International has revealed that Wilmar is tainted by shocking human rights abuses in Indonesia, with children as young as eight working in hazardous conditions.
It is not okay for our dairy industry to be profiting from these human rights abuses.
We are calling on Fonterra to follow the example set by Landcorp earlier this year, stop using PKE and support sustainable agriculture not rainforest deforestation and cruelty.
Fonterra, it’s time to stop importing PKE into New Zealand.
