Why palm oil?

Palm oil is a common ingredient in many packaged foods, from better-for-you nutrition bars and heart-healthy spreads to indulgent cookies and candies. 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.

But here in the U.S., most of us are just learning to appreciate palm oil for its health, culinary and environmental benefits.

Why Malaysian palm oil?

Much of the palm oil consumed in the United States is sustainably grown and produced from Malaysia. 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. Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) certification became mandatory as of 2020, and the country is working toward 100% compliance.
