In September, the Rainforest Action Network (RAN) launched a campaign calling on the snack food industry to commit to responsible palm oil policies which source palm oil free from deforestation and human rights violations. Palm oil is a key ingredient in almost half of the processed foods sold in grocery stores, like ice cream, cookies, crackers, cereals, baby formula, soups and frozen meals. RAN publicly named 20 snack food companies, including major American brands, for not having sufficient policies in place to ensure their supply of palm oil comes from sustainable and humane sources.
