Support palm oil labelling on food products
Do you want to know if palm oil is in your food?
At the moment it’s hard to find out. This is because palm oil can be listed under the generic term ‘vegetable oil’.
But this could all change. State, Territory and Federal ministers will soon consider whether labels will have to say exactly what’s in our food: exactly what oils, sugars and fats have been added.
So take a moment to tell them you want labels that tell you if palm oil is in your food.
Tell your minister that you want labels to tell you if palm oil is in your food
A 2011 food labelling review recommended that added oils, sugars and fats be clearly identified on food products. Make sure your State or Territory minister responsible for food knows you want clear food labels so palm oil can’t hide under the generic ‘vegetable oil’ label.
