What’s in KFC’s secret recipe? Mashed-up bits of rainforest. Researchers have found that KFC’s throw-away packaging contains fiber from Indonesia’s remaining lush rainforests, home to the world’s smallest tiger, the critically-endangered Sumatran tiger.

Ten percent of the world’s remaining tropical forest is found in Indonesia, and KFC is destroying it — the habitat of the last remaining Sumatran tigers — to make buckets for fast-food fries and chicken.

Use the form on the right to sign our urgent petition to KFC and YUM! Brands CEOs demanding they stop using critical rainforest in their food packaging.

More than two million hectares of Indonesian rainforests have been lost to logging every year since 1996. As a result, only a few hundred of the exquisite Sumatran tigers are left in the wild.

KFC gets the paper for its packaging from a notoriously destructive company called Asia Pulp & Paper (APP). Right now, APP is driving rainforest destruction in Indonesia at an alarming rate to meet KFC’s demands — leaving endangered Sumatran tigers with nowhere to go.

Already, some of the world’s largest companies, like Nestle and Mattel, have agreed to stop sourcing from APP, but KFC is holding out. At the current rate of destruction, the forecast for these tigers and the rainforest itself isn’t looking good. But if we generate enough public outcry now, we can help make sure that KFC does the right thing and stops sourcing its throwaway packaging from Indonesia’s remaining rainforests.

Help us expose the truth behind’s KFC’s real recipe and tell it to stop serving up fast food in rainforest destruction. Use the form on the right to sign the petition now.
