Nutella Tax

"THE PROPOSAL IS BASED ON INACCURATE CLAIMS. PALM OIL IS HEALTHY, NATURAL AND IMPORTANT PRODUCT WHICH 240,000 SMALL FARMERS IN MALAYSIA ARE PROUD TO PRODUCE." - Tan Sri Dr Yusof Basiron, Malaysian Palm Oil Council chief executive officer, slamming a French legislature's proposal to increase tax on palm oil by 300% dubbed the 'Nutella Tax', as palm oil unhealthy.
