Kudos to Unilever and Walmart

It is certainly commendable for the 2 corporations to make this commitment to source sustainable palm oil, rather than the mere lip service that'd come to dominate this debate!

It is commendable as increased usage of sustainable palm oil would ultimately take away the platform built on a mesh of sorry lies and creative "evidence" of deforestation aimed at the palm oil industry by surrogates of the European Commission which had been exposed recently by Italian civil libertarian group. Libertiamo as the brains and main funding provider for these silly anti-palm oil campaigns, primarily to protect the EU's indigenous edible oil industry!
