For decades, international food manufacturers have associated Malaysian-sourced palm oil with quality. This proud nation produces more than 40 percent of the world’s certified sustainable palm oil. The United States, as well as other countries with high standards, imports most of its palm oil from Malaysia because the country is dedicated to palm oil quality.
“The palm oil industry is a key catalyst to alleviate poverty, ensure no one goes hungry and provide decent work and economic growth,” Keong wrote. The country is continuing its progressive and eco-friendly approach by mandating that all palm oil producers become MSPO certified by the end of 2019.

Certified sustainable Malaysian palm oil is an ideal substitute because of its health, performance and sustainability qualities.
