PepsiCo Inc.

The secret is out. I know about the hidden ingredient PepsiCo is putting into kid’s snack foods and other products.

Conflict Palm Oil is enslaving children, killing endangered orangutans, and destroying the rainforest. I will not stand for it in my home.

We’ve told 20 snack food companies that this issue affects how I feel about their products. Other companies have listened, adopted responsible palm oil policies and taken action to cut Conflict Palm Oil from their supply chains.

PepsiCo is falling behind.

It is not acceptable to hide behind weak sourcing commitments or so called 'sustainable' palm oil from the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), which continues to certify companies who destroy rainforests, peatlands and abuse the rights of forest communities and workers.

Earning my dollars comes with earning my trust. To regain my trust, PepsiCo must demand responsible palm oil from its suppliers and eliminate Conflict Palm Oil contamination of its products.

I encourage you to secure a new global responsible palm oil procurement policy and implementation plan that ensures that the palm oil in PepsiCo's supply chain is fully traceable, legally grown, and sourced from verified responsible palm oil producers not associated with deforestation, expansion onto carbon-rich peatlands or human and labor rights violations. That means fully fixing your Conflict Palm Oil problem - and half measures, greenwash, and marketing will simply not suffice.

I have made a stand to protect the last wild orangutans. I will not stand by brands that use Conflict Palm Oil.

Signed,

Rainforest Action Network

How this will help

With your help we have pushed many major companies to cut Conflict Palm Oil from their products.

Together, we can get PepsiCo to do it too.

It's been one year since we launched the campaign to cut Conflict Palm Oil from America's snack foods. The good news is that with your help we are achieving real changes from many major companies, proving that not only is it possible for companies to change, but that people-powered pressure works to bring this change about. 

Unfortunately, there are still some critical companies that are refusing to take action to address their Conflict Palm Oil problem. One of the worst offenders in the Conflict Palm Oil world - who is also one of biggest makers of popular kid's snacks - won't even acknowledge the destruction it's causing. 

PepsiCo is a major Conflict Palm Oil laggard, dragging its feet, refusing to admit it even has a problem. With a whopping 457,200 metric tons of palm oil used annually in snacks like Cheetos and Lay's potato chips, PepsiCo has a huge impact on the planet, the forests, and the people and animals which call them home. 

Sign this petition to tell PepsiCo you won't have deforestation, extinction, or slavery in your home.
