Ben Dowdle

From Saturday Morning, 8:42 am on 19 November 2016

Ben Dowdle is director of Unmask Palm Oil and is campaigning for mandatory labeling of palm oil which is found in around half of all packaged foods. Palm oil plantations have been linked to deforestation, habitat destruction, pollution and harm to indigenous communities. Zoos across Aotearoa and Australia have been working with Ben in the Ask for Choice campaign and next week MPs from both countries will decide whether to introduce mandatory labeling of all vegetable oils, including palm oil, on food products.
