Some of the world's most popular companies are selling food and cosmetics containing palm oil tainted by shocking human rights abuses in Indonesia, including forced and child labour.
Corporate giants, such as Nestlé, Kellogg's, Colgate, Unilever and Procter & Gamble are turning a blind eye to exploitation of workers in their palm oil supply chain. These companies reassure their customers that they are using "sustainable" palm oil, yet they fail to do basic checks to ensure that the palm oil they use has been produced free from human rights abuses.
Amnesty's research shows severe labour abuses on palm oil plantations in Indonesia, including unsafe working conditions, discrimination against women, unrealistic targets and penalties, and children doing hazardous work.
Join us in calling on the makers of Dove soap, KitKat, Knorr soup, Pantene shampoo, Gerber baby cereal, Colgate toothpaste, Good Start baby formula, Quality Street chocolates and Magnum and Parlour ice cream and demand that they take responsibility for human rights abuses in their palm oil supply chain. Sign the petition to ask big brands whether popular food and cosmetics sold in Canada contain palm oil tainted by human rights abuses.
