Response From Green & Black, Orangutans and Palm Oil

Tuesday, 8 September 2009

Green & Blacks

Another response from a company on their use of palm oil. This time it's Green & Black's.

"Thank you for contacting Green & Black’s concerning the sourcing of palm oil we use in our products. It is always helpful for us to know the concerns of our customers so thank you sincerely for taking the time to contact us.
Most of the fat used in our chocolate is cocoa butter derived from the cocoa bean. However, we do have a small number of products which have components containing palm oil.

• Butterscotch chocolate range: palm oil is found within the butterscotch pieces so this affects the Butterscotch bar and Butterscotch Easter egg range
• Hazelnut Spread
• After Dinner Mint Chocolate Leaves
• The Assortment
• Soft- filled milk chocolate eggs
• Nut & Seed and Fruit & Nut cereal bars
I can confirm that where we do use palm oil, this oil comes from a supplier who is a member of the recently established Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). The RSPO set the gold standard for the sourcing of palm oil. This body was established to address the issue of sustainable production of palm oil. You can find out more about their work through their website:

Thank you once again for your interest in our brand and I hope that with these reassurances you will continue to enjoy our products in future."

Lomon spent years chained up in a wooden box, & when he was rescued, he weighed only 1/3 of what he should. Through the love & attention he recieved at the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation he has now gained not only the weight he needed, but also his self-confidence. Why not help by adopting him?

Ruthie also lives at the Borneo Survival Foundation - she was expelled from Forest School for biting. Without attending school she has no chance of being returned to the wild. However, given enough time and attention, there is still hope for her. Click on her picture to learn more about how to adopt her.
