Our Company are doing what we can to help create change through our actions and inspiring others to make changes.
The Wild Peanut has thought about the whole process of the production, and that starts with the farmers, all the way to the customers. We take extra care with even which suppliers we work with to ensure they match with our core values and ultimately ensure that we are not cutting corners in anything we plan to achieve.
Palm Oil Touches our lives more than you may think. Actually it does every time you make a trip to the supermarket. Palm Oil is found in a range of foods including ice cream, cookies, biscuits, drinks, cereals and even 'healthy' breakfast bars. But why is this a problem? Well this causes a few issues....
Nearly 90% percent of palm oil is grown in the tropical countries of Indonesia and Malaysia, where palm oil plantations under active cultivation cover 16 million acres, an area similar in size to West Virginia. Rainforest destruction for palm oil expansion is spreading quickly to other valuable rainforest regions such as in Central Africa.
Corporate land grabbing of Indigenous and community forests for palm oil plantations is responsible for serious human rights abuses and persistent conflicts between companies and rural communities. Many industrial palm oil plantations also rely on the use of forced and child labor. In Malaysia and Indonesia, child labor has been documented and allegations of modern-day slavery on plantations across Malaysia are common. Endangered species Endangered animals such as the Sumatran tiger and Sumatran rhinoceros, both have populations with only hundreds left in the wild, are also urgently threatened by palm oil expansion.
We understand at that people don't generally go out there way to hurt the environment however unfortunately allot of the every day items we buy are not sustainable;
The Wild Peanut take pride in being different. We only source produce in ethical ways and given our goal is to help stop many issues that currently happen, you can be sure that when you buy a wild peanut peanut butter there's no harm to the environment just great natural peanut butter with unique mix of flavours.
