Label Palm Oil

Palm oil is a hidden ingredient in food products. You have the right to know if palm oil is contained in the products you buy because of the environmental and social impacts of its production.

  • Sneaky labeling makes it difficult for Aussie consumers to identify palm oil in supermarket products.
  • It is found in over half packaged food products in supermarkets such as chocolate, biscuits, cereals, margarine, soup, crisps and ice cream.
  • Many concerned community members like yourself have tried to get palm oil labelled.
  • But every time we get close the Australian government caves to pressure from the Malaysian palm oil industry.
  • Now we don’t have the choice to know whether we’re eating palm oil or not

Together we can make a difference.

Contact your local representative today and ask that palm oil be labelled on Aussie supermarket shelves - You are more powerful than you think! Send an email expressing your concern today.

Want to do that little bit more? Pick up the phone, simply calling to state your name, where you live and your concern is worth 1,000 emails! ...but, you should also...

Email your state representative automatically using the form below and we'll send them the following email:

Dear ….
I am a local constituent of ……
I am writing because I am concerned that palm oil does not have to be labelled on products on Australian supermarket shelves.
As a consumer I have a right to know what is in the products I purchase. I have recently become aware that it is currently not mandatory to label specific oils on products sold in Australia.
Please ensure the ingredient list is expanded to require specific types of oils and sugars to be labelled to indicate their origin by adopting recommendation 61 of the government’s independent review, Labelling Logic.

Please advise me of your progress asap.

Kind Regards
