Informing our customers
While palm oil itself is a useful product, unsustainable farming practices have a negative impact on the environment and wildlife in developing countries where palms are grown.
We’re increasingly sourcing grocery products and fresh produce from environmentally responsible growers and suppliers, improving efficiencies within our supply chain, reducing greenhouse gas emissions across our business, and focusing on waste reduction and recycling.
Coles has committed to label palm oil where it is used in Coles branded products to make it easier for customers to make informed purchasing decisions. Our policy ensures that we always identify palm oil instead of using the term 'blended vegetable oils'.
