    Addicted to Palm Oil?

    19:30 - 21:00Reading International Solidarity Centre

    35-39 London street, Reading RG1 4PS

    Between 1995 - 2015 worldwide production of palm oil quadrupled. It is expected to quadruple again by 2050. Oil palm plantations account for 10% of all global cropland. It is a miracle crop for the producers. It gives the highest yield per acre of any oil seed crop.

    What is driving the massive increase in demand? What effect is it having on people and planet? What can we do?

    We will have a short film and talk followed by discussion.
