Activist Receives Personally Threatening Letter From Anon Australian Company

  

The group ‘Palm Oil Investigations‘ has begun a powerful movement against the use of palm oil due to its environmental impact. Palm oil is commonly found in consumables and is a prominent ingredient in many Australian products.

Leading a charge against un-certified palm oil on Australian shelves, POI has made a massive impact by educating Aussies as to both the consequences of the use of palm oil and the specific products in which palm oil can be found.
  
An example of the important work that POI does.

They also have plans to soon release an app that will allow users to scan a barcode or search a product to quickly and easily ascertain as to whether or not it contains palm oil. Apparently news of this app has at least one company feeling cornered to the point that they actually threatened the volunteers behind the POI group

The cowardly anonymous letter leaves little to the imagination:
  
  
While the police investigate, we should all do our part to stand up to this company and the industry itself by following and supporting the POI page here and by making use of the app when it becomes available.
