Meeting a Supporter of Bad Oil and the Animals
Three animal welfare champions, Sue Kedgley, Dr. Michael Morris and Ben Dowdle gave generous endorsement for the Bad Oil and the Animals cover. Just days after the first printed copies of the book arrived, I met Ben Dowdle, Unmask Palm Oil Director in person, during his 21 November 2016 presentation to Parliament of hundreds of thousands of signed postcards calling for the mandatory labelling of palm oil on food products.
New Zealand’s major zoos and Unmask Palm Oil are urging NZ Food Safety Minister Jo Goodhew to follow European standards and adopt this practice. “Independent polling shows 92% of New Zealanders and 84% of Australians support this change,” Ben says.
