Don’t forget to check your candy this year — we just found an entire destroyed forest in ours!

Think candy tampering is an urban legend? It’s not — monster corporations have slipped some pretty grotesque tricks into your Halloween treats. And I’m not talking about rainbow pills disguised as candy.

I’m talking about hidden horrors at the center of some of your favorite candies. How massive candymakers like Nestlé and Mondelēz hide deforestation, human rights violations and species endangerment under the guise of KitKat bars and Sour Patch Kids.

Nestlé and Mondelēz candies contain Conflict Palm Oil, responsible for wide-scale forest destruction in some of the planet’s last intact rainforests — like the Leuser Ecosystem of Sumatra, Indonesia.

Nestlé and Mondelēz supply chains are a house of horror, filled with monstrous producers and middlemen directly responsible for rainforest destruction.

Soulless, faceless ghouls without PR departments or slick ad campaigns: Companies like Royal Golden Eagle, connected to land grabbing in Indigenous territories and destruction of endangered species habitat. Help us exorcise these supply chain demons.

Halloween is becoming more and more dangerous — for rainforests. Check your candy this year, you never know what it might be hiding.

Trick or treat,
