Auckland Zoo congratulates Cadbury’s
Auckland Zoo is delighted at Cadbury New Zealand’s decision to remove palm oil from its dairy milk chocolate range, and commends the company for listening to its customers.
“It’s fantastic to see an iconic and trusted brand like Cadbury’s taking such a leadership role in this way.  This is a bold move, and one that they can be very proud of,” says Auckland Zoo director, Jonathan Wilcken.
“Palm oil production is responsible for the rapid destruction of rainforest habitats and remains the single greatest threat to the existence of orang utans, and many other South East Asian wildlife species. The most important thing we can all do for orang utans and the South East Asian rainforest eco-system is to stop consuming palm oil.”
Auckland Zoo will be proud to reinstate Cadbury’s palm-oil free chocolate at its zoo outlets as soon as it becomes available.
