British family-run supermarket chain Iceland Food Warehouse threw down the gauntlet in April 2018 when its managing director Richard Walker announced the company had banned the use of palm oil in its products because of the devastation caused by deforestation of natural habitats to create palm oil plantations. In this footage of his visit to Borneo, he explains his convictions and actions. Palm oil has become ubiquitous in products from soap to ice-cream because of its versatility. Walker's next challenge is to eliminate the use of plastics in Iceland aisles by 2023.
