The chocolate companies on the hunt for a sustainable Easter egg

Global Forest Information Service - Fri, 2015-03-27 15:59

Nestle, Cadbury and Mars are among the global confectioners making efforts to source certified palm oil, but is this helping prevent deforestation and do consumers even care?

For the ethical shopper, hunting for chocolate Easter eggs has always been a challenge. But thanks to new labelling laws and a dramatic sea change in manufacturers’ attitudes, palm oil may be one area where life is now much easier for anyone after conscientious confectionery.

From 13 December last year, new EU laws made it mandatory for palm oil to be declared on product labelling and not hidden as generic vegetable oils, meaning those keen to avoid it no longer need to play detective. But with certified palm oil now the norm in the majority of UK chocolate, that wariness may no longer be warranted.
