Chiquita Brands vice-president Manuel Rodriguez in a support letter to Aaron Sanger of the environmental group ForestEthics:
“We are committed to directing our transportation providers to avoid, where possible, fuels from tarsands refineries”
“We will identify all fuel providers for these (Chiquita-)owned or dedicated trucking fleets and work with ForestEthics to identify any connection between Chiquita’s fuel providers and tarsands refineries toward the goal of eliminating fuel from these providers that is connected with tarsands refineries.” (see here)
Guess there’s now a fruit company I will be avoiding since our oil isn’t good enough for it.
Also: See how well this worked for Bed, Bath and Beyond here
Update: Well, that didn’t take long for retaliation from an Alberta business group (see here)
