    I think what we need to do is encourage local products and oils available in from our own farmers.for example South India is rich in peanut, sesame and coconut oil. This way there produce will improve and they will have business. Other than that any cost of transportation, dependence on fossil fuel etc and large scale manufacturing and wastage will decrease. It will have a large impact on global players.. local farmers will prosper.. Maybe prices would rise slightly but in the long run benefit our children. Open to more ideas... :-)

    Conspicuous consumption is what needs adjusting . It seems as if this is as good a crop for fats as can be expected but the immensity of production can't justify deforestation .

    Hemp oil! It’s healthy, hearty, requires less: land, water, pesticides. Cultivation trials in tropical areas are proving successful. Empty promises from palm oil producers for this many years will not solve this crisis. Bold action against the multinationals who don’t care if we lose these precious species is the very least we can do. Send the only message they listen to🌏�si

    The world isn't hooked on palm oil, the food industry is, with a view to turning large profits.

    Who tf cares about what people want honestly they only want their money, there would be no demand of a discontinued product, we dont need half the products they sell us with palm oil

    STOP planting it. If they can't get it, they'll find something else.

    There are an endless supply of food grade oil ... It's in everything and even if we could moderate our personal intake ... The company's market will find it another avenue ..This is a land management issue and or a country where we have no control ...

    Each country should produce for itself the fats (and foods) it needs, so the poor countries would not devastate their natural biodiversity for the sake of the rich, as it was before corporate globalisation.

    The deviation caused by this crop does not equal any benefits from it.
