An exclusive interview with Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC) CEO Datuk Dr. Kalyana Sundram ranked among the top 10 most-read Asia-Pacific food and beverage industry stories in August 2020. The article, “Costly and Time-Consuming: Malaysian Palm Oil Boss hits out at EU’s Farm-to-Fork Strategy,” was published by FoodNavigator-Asia

The popularity of this article may indicate that others in the food and beverage industry share Datuk Sundram’s concerns that, “The issue here is that we are sure that this is not going to be just applicable to produce that is generated in the EU, but all produce entering the EU would be subject to this too as these have become part of the EU food chain given how highly globalised the world has become.”
