Why is the palm oil a threat?
Palm oil is the most commonly used vegetable oil in Europe. We can find it in almost 50% of packaged products. Intensive palm oil cultivation is associated with the deforestation of tropical rainforests in Southeast Asia, Africa and South America, contributing to the destruction of the local populations, plants and animals.
