Nestle reacts to Greenpeace campaign

According to Greenpeace yesterday, “Nestlé, the world’s biggest food and drinks company, announced today that it will stop using products that come from rainforest destruction…Under its new policy, Nestlé commits to identify and exclude companies from its supply chain that own or manage ‘high risk plantations or farms linked to deforestation’.

This exclusion would apply to companies such as Sinar Mas, Indonesia’s most notorious palm oil and pulp and paper supplier, if it fails to meet the criteria set out in the policy. It also has implications for palm oil traders, such as Cargill, which continue to buy from Sinar Mas.
