Wilmar International Response to Nigeria palm oil land grab allegations

Wilmar expects its suppliers to comply with its No Deforestation, No Peat and No Exploitation Policy (“Policy”), and its own operations are no exception.  It is being implemented across all operations including subsidiaries and joint ventures, in partnership with The Forest Trust (TFT). A testament to our continuous efforts in Nigeria and Uganda can be found in a write-up from TFT explaining the work Wilmar, together with TFT, have done - and are continuing to do - to ensure that our practices in those two countries comply with our Policy...The Group therefore rejects the allegations in yet again another report “Deforestation, exploitation, hypocrisy: no end to Wilmar's palm oil land grabs” by Friends of the Earth (FoE) and the Ecologist, particularly the case of Nigeria, in which many of the allegations were rehashed and have been dismissed by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) Complaints Panel. We welcome issues to be raised by concerned stakeholders but we would appreciate that they are based on facts and supported by evidence.  For this reason, Wilmar is obliged to clarify many of the misleading points in the report... [Wilmar also provided this water analysis from a laboratory in Nigeria as part of its response.]
