Driving the Destruction of Critical Rainforests: PepsiCo, Kraft Heinz, Nissin Foods, Toyo Suisan, Tyson Foods and the Leuser Ecosystem

What do PepsiCo, Kraft Heinz, Nissin Foods, Toyo Suisan and Tyson Foods have in common? Each of these Snack Food Laggards have failed to take meaningful action to address their Conflict Palm Oil problem or do their part to save critical rainforests, including the Leuser Ecosystem.

A new RAN report on the state of the Leuser Ecosystem reveals continued devastation being inflicted on this world-class ecological hotspot on the island of Sumatra. Despite the issuance of a moratorium by the government of Indonesia to halt the destruction of the Leuser Ecosystem for Conflict Palm Oil, forests continue to fall and peatlands continue to be burned, driving endangered Sumatran orangutans, elephants, rhinos and tigers closer to extinction. Snack Food Laggards PepsiCo, Kraft Heinz, Nissin Foods, Toyo Suisan and Tyson Foods cannot ensure they are not linked to this destruction given their sub-standard palm oil policies and practices.

Sign the petiton: demand the Snack Food Laggards stop the destruction of critical forests like the Leuser Ecosystem.

To PepsiCo, Kraft Heinz, Nissin Foods, Toyo Suisan and Tyson Foods:

Despite the issuance of a moratorium by the government of Indonesia to halt the destruction of the Leuser Ecosystem for Conflict Palm Oil, its forests continue to fall and peatlands continue to be burned driving endangered Sumatran orangutans, elephants, rhinos and tigers closer to extinction.

As a major global food brand, your company has a crucial role to play in securing the protection of the Leuser Ecosystem. Your company must take urgent action to eliminate Conflict Palm Oil from its supply chain. It is imperative that your company adopt and implement a robust, time-bound responsible palm oil policy—otherwise your company cannot ensure it is not linked to the destruction of rainforests, including the Leuser Ecosystem.

Your company is lagging behind its peers. It cannot afford further delays in taking action to clean up its supply chain and protect this critical ecosystem.
