Ecology Minister Urges France To Stop Eating Nutella and Save the Forests

France’s ecology minister, Ségolène Royal, has rankled the company that makes Nutella by urging the public to stop eating its irresistible chocolate hazelnut spread, saying it contributes to deforestation. In an interview on Monday, Royal said “We have to replant a lot of trees because there is massive deforestation that also leads to global warming. We should stop eating Nutella, for example, because it’s made with palm oil" Explaining that “Oil palms have replaced trees, and therefore caused considerable damage to the environment,”
