About

300 soccer fields are cleared every hour in SE Asia so that palm oil can be produced. Palm oil is a hidden ingredient in our food. Help Zoos Victoria get it labeled and give the Orang-utans a chance.

Zoos Victoria is calling on all Australians to excercise your rights as a consumer.

We want to change food labeling standards so that palm oil is labeled in food products.

Simply sign our campaign postcard at www.zoo.org.au/palmoil and tell Food Standards Australia and New Zealand that you have the right to know if palm oil is in your food. Tell them Don't Palm us Off.

1. More than a thousand Orang-utans die every year because their habitat is destroyed for palm oil.

2. Palm oil is in about 40% of the food products in our supermarket but you often don't know it becuase it's not labeled.

3. By labeling palm oil we have a choice about whether our food is adding to this crisis.
