KFC-Indonesia suspends purchases from Asia Pulp & Paper due to deforestation
While KFC bosses in Kentucky remain silent on whether it will cut forest destruction out of its supply chain globally, it looks like one country has gotten tired of waiting for headquarters to respond to the Greenpeace campaign.
Following a first meeting between KFC Indonesia and Greenpeace, KFC Indonesia has issued a statement to address the issues of deforestation in its supply chain and declared its decision to suspend purchases from Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) at this time.
This is a welcome start and comes off the back of Greenpeace protests in some of Indonesia’s biggest cities, which has helped capture the attention of both the Indonesian public and media. This is in addition to the more than 180,000 actions taken by people like you to help tell KFC to drop deforestation.
