Get the Facts: Malaysian Palm Oil

Why palm oil?

Palm oil is the most widely consumed vegetable oil on the planet! About 2.3 billion people around the world currently depend on palm oil as an important part of their food supply.

Why Malaysian palm oil?

Malaysian palm oil is a food industry favorite because of its quality, wholesomeness and versatility. It’s non-GMO and nutritious, delivers a creamy texture and long shelf life, plus it’s responsibly produced.

In 2008, Malaysia was the first to produce and export sustainable palm oil. One hundred percent of Malaysia’s palm oil will be certified sustainable by 2020.
