Before this spoof was released, palm oil didn’t seem like such a flagrant ingredient in KitKat bars. This video, on the other hand, makes is seem disgusting- and for a good reason.
After this commercial went viral, thousands of complaints were issued to Nestle and the company had to change their source of the ingredient.
Indonesia, like many developing countries in which American firms are embedded, has been constantly raped of it’s natural resources for years. Palm trees were at the top of the list earlier this year and, as a result, much of the wildlife has been dying.
As you can see from the picture above, the protesting worked and GreenPeace declared a “sweet success” for the protection of Indonesia’s rainforests. Hopefully Nestle lives up to their word.
