Iceland's Christmas TV ad banned for being too political | Media

Iceland's Christmas campaign has been banned from TV because it has been deemed to breach political advertising rules.

Greenpeace to rebadge an animated short film featuring an orangutan and the destruction of its rainforest habit at the hands of palm oil growers.

Earlier this year, Iceland became the first major UK supermarket to remove palm oil from all its own-brand foods. Habitat loss in countries such as Malaysia – a major global producer of palm oil – has contributed to the orangutan now being classified as critically endangered.

Banning political advertising laid down by the 2003 Communications Act.
