Which chocolate contains Palm Oil?!

Year 6 have been finding out about the Palm Oil industry.  We have investigated the positive and negative impact this industry has on the countries which grow Palm Oil plantations.

Each class explored a range of chocolate treats to see which contained Palm Oil and which did not.  There were a few surprises!

We discussed the importance of producing sustainable Palm Oil and how this may be done.  Then researched which companies are committed to buying sustainable Palm Oil and which aren’t, and why this might be.

The children are now planning to write a formal letter to a company in order to persuade them to invest in sustainable Palm Oil.
