Sign Oxfam International’s Petition on Land Grabs

On October 2nd, 2013 Oxfam International published a press release which highlighted the release of their new report, Sugar Rush: Land rights and the supply chains of the biggest food and beverage companies. In the report, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and Associated British Foods (ABF)  stand accused of intensifying the rush for land (in Africa specifically but also worldwide) through their increasing demand for sugar.

In light of this situation, Oxfam is asking these three companies to understand and build awareness around the risks related to land issues, commit to zero tolerance for land grabs, offer full disclosure and transparency with respect to their sugar supply chains, lobby governments and corporations for improvements on land issues, and support equitable agricultural investments.

If you agree with these requests and wish to speak out, please visit their website and consider signing their petition here:
