I was in the store the other day and checked out the ingredients of Newman’s Own Organics product, popcorn. There staring me in the face was “Organic Palm Oil.” I sent them a salvo in my One Man Email Vendetta/Campaign. Here’s their response:

Thank you for your letter concerning the nature of the organic Palm Fruit Oil Newman’s Own Organics uses. Our supply of organic Palm Fruit Oil comes from co-ops in Colombia. The Palm Oil is certified organic by EcoCert, an international third party organic certifying agency.
In addition, another certifying body, RSPO, sets and monitors standards for environmental integrity, treatment of employees and social issues.

I hope this information will be of help to you.

Sincerely,

Director, Customer Relations Newman’s Own Organics peggyw@newmansownorganics.com

Look at that! The palm oil is not even from the Indonesia “killing fields.”
