Rainforest Action Network’s field investigators documented the trafficking of freshly harvested oil palm fruit


Rainforest Action Network’s field investigators documented the trafficking of freshly harvested oil palm fruit from an illegal palm oil plantation developed on peatlands inside the Leuser Ecosystem’s national protected Rawa Singkil Wildlife Reserve1 to a nearby palm oil broker.

Two mills were identified to be processing the controversial oil palm fruit and were found to be supplying refinery operators and traders, who in turn sell and distribute palm oil products to major snack food companies in over 100 countries worldwide.

Unilever, PepsiCo, Nestlé, Mondelēz, General Mills, Kellogg’s, Mars and Hershey’s were all found sourcing palm oil from suppliers connected to deforestation in one of the world’s most important peatland forests: the Singkil-Bengkung region of the Leuser Ecosystem. This is despite public commitments made by each company to halt sourcing from suppliers destroying rainforests and peatlands for new palm oil plantations several years ago.
