Sustainable Palm Oil: a look back on the Paris Agricultural Show
The French Alliance for Sustainable Palm Oil was present at the International Agriculture Show in Paris in 2014. The Alliance’s intention was to fight misconceptions about palm oil and educate consumers and all stakeholders about the environmental and social issues related to oil palm cultivation. Activities included the signing of a formal pledge in the presence of Ministry of Agriculture, Agrifood and Forestry and NGOs, presentations by experts, cooking classes and free tastings of products from near and far. With nearly 20,000 visitors to the stand and extensive dialogue with the public, sustainable palm oil surprised many visitors to the show: see our photo story on the event!
