Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil Certification
Malaysia was the first country to produce sustainable oil. And now the country is strengthening its sustainability commitment with its nationwide Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) certification program.
This ground-breaking certification program will be mandatory countrywide by the end of 2019. MSPO certification addresses the environmental, social and economic aspects of palm oil production. It also documents the importance of balancing these aspects for the good of all involved. It covers all aspects of palm oil production, from the field to the final product. MSPO certification differentiates Malaysia’s palm oil from the competition.
