Well done Iceland Foods my new favourite supermarket

Found 10th Apr
Iceland foods is to stop using palm oil in own-brand products by the end of 2018.

The Deeside-based chain - the first major UK supermarket to ban palm oil - said it was used in more than half of its products, from biscuits to soap.

Iceland said growing demand for the oil was devastating tropical rainforests across southeast Asia.

The frozen food specialist said it was alerted to the environmental challenges that palm oil presented by campaigners at Greenpeace.

Can they stop using thai chicken and write the origin of all their stuff on the packaging instead of just packed in the uk.

Can they start putting some decent beef in their madras curry, instead of enormous chunks of gristle.

Do you trust their treatment of the animals when alive? I don't and they are one of the biggest exporters of chicken meat in the world, lots of ready meals and processed chicken products in this country contain Thailand chicken, the two biggest you will find actually amongst frozen chicken based goods is Thailand and Poland, if I'm buying frozen I avoid Thailand.
I've avoided their farmed prawns after watching videos of how thats produced, not good and has a bad effect on the environment in many ways.

I'm not on about all that. I just mean Thai curry is nice. Rightly or wrongly, ethics about how their food is produced isn't at the forefront of everyone's mind.
Well I've just done my online shop at Iceland and they've no leeks. This won't stop me shopping there because their delivery is best and cheapest. I don't buy cheap meat like theirs so that doesn't bother me. Same reason I don't eat fast food. I'd rather do without. Sure the frozen broccoli is ethically sourced

Yup, certainly dont want seafood from the far-east. Iceland blatantly deceives its customers.

Iceland is one of the most expensive places for living costs.... importing from there would be a nightmare... even in a pun about Iceland foods I shudder at the cost of stuff in the real Iceland...
Turns out in place of palm oil they'll be using minced up puppies. Enjoy
Dear Iceland, please sell a bit more fresh veg especially courgettes, price match aldi on their chicken thighs, sell turkey mince and get some proper cheese in. Then i would never have to shop anywhere else ever again.

Thanks,

You get what you pay for, meat is expensive so if your paying £1 you’re getting the finest stuff barely fit for human consumption. The rest of the leftover animal parts goes for cat/dog food, the meat is sold as joints. Want good meat by a joint or breast.

I can't even get out in the garden at the moment. Tried it but I fell out of the back door. Crutches are harder than they look. Got out eventually but then the puppy fell in the pond and I had to rescue it. All without putting any weight on the broken ankle. It was too traumatic

Planted up some lovely planters end of last year. Can't see a single one of them from the safety of the kitchen. All I can see from the living room is the fact the lawn needs edging
