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.
