Actually Palm Oil is present in many products on sale in any supermarket, so for me it would be very interesting to know who is targeting Nutella and why, not that Nutella is good for you but it's like picking on one product among the many that go unpicked for using palm oil - why is that?

So my suggestion would be to make it a wider issue and not focus on Nutella, we don't know if this is driven by Nutella competitors, as the world goes we can safely say we are all participating in every possible abuse and maybe that's where our Equality will start from, from our common awareness as equal abusers to stepping up to changing things for a world that works for all and works on reducing abuses considering the consequences of what our actions have on a large scale.
We have a large unemployment in Italy, if people catch the boycott Nutella and Ferrero's sales go down to a level where people are made redundant in a country with no social bumpers, have we done a service or a disservice to the situation we are facing? Who will take care of the families of the people of Ferrero? Why not move to ask the Ferrero company to align to a more responsible business ethic and set an example for others to follow. That way the company won't feel threatened and they may even like the idea to become trendsetters of a new way of doing business that takes into account the environment and what the clients demand as a powerful united buyers group.
Furthermore, if we have to take up issues with how businesses operate within a model of abuse and or slavery, we can't discount the cocoa business, many documentaries have been made on the reality of children exploited on cocoa plantations, what's our take on that?
My take on this topic. Thanks
