End Ties to Companies With Human Rights Violations

Tell Pepsico to cut ties with Indofood after it exited the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil due to its human rights violations. These violations include unsafe working conditions, gender discrimination, and child labor.[1]

Indofoods has a long history of human rights and environmental abuses.[2] Pepsi has already stopped sourcing palm oil from Indofood because of its human rights violations [3], but the company is still connected with Indofood through joint venture partnerships.

Nestle, Cargill, Hershey's, Kellogg's, Unilever, and Mars have all cut ties with Indofood.[4] Pepsi merely expressed its disappointment with Indofoods choosing to exit the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil, rather than resolve its human rights violations.[5] Words are not an acceptable substitute for action, tell Pepsico to stop doing business with Indofoods.
