Iceland Foods has not released any statement saying it has decided not to release its Christmas TV ad in 2021.
According to BBC News, Iceland Foods released its 2018 Christmas advertisement on YouTube but was quickly banned from broadcasting on TV channels. The video highlights the devastation caused by palm oil products. Clearcast, which pre-approves British television advertising, claimed it violated the 2003 Communications Act's rules on political advertising. The Christmas ad wasn't approved because it was made by the environmental organization Greenpeace.
