The French Minister of Ecology declares Nutella non grata

Desserts

Because my children still do not read the press, that if they had not put their hands to their heads when reading in today's newspapers that the French minister of ecology declares Nutella non grata, with what they like. What if In our country, would it be advisable, as has happened in neighboring France, to stop taking so famous chocolate and hazelnut cream?

Ségolène Royal has declared that it is necessary to stop taking Nutella to save the planet, because palm oil is used to make it and this contributes to global deforestation. And I wonder, to save the planet is enough to stop consuming Nutella? How many other products use this oil? What other ingredients are used in food that are harmful to the environment?

On the other hand, I do not know if the "excuse" of the environment is used to damage the image of a brand as established as Nutella and the Ferrero Group to which it belongs. For the Italian press, it is a communication operation in the focus of the climate conference that will be held soon in Paris. In fact, Ségolène has also announced its intention to ban the pesticide Roundup whose active ingredient (glyphosate) could be carcinogenic, according to the WHO.

I would like to know what you think about the French Minister of Ecology declaring Nutella non grata. Is it a propaganda measure? A direct attack on Italy, as the Ferrero Group is Italian? It is clear to me that the use of certain ingredients that are used in food must be regulated, be it for an environmental or health issue, and we have to start somewhere. Will our country follow the example?
