The world is demanding responsibly produced palm oil, and Malaysia is delivering. The country has developed its own stringent certification program, Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO), specifically for the needs of both people and planet. The country has an aggressive goal of certifying 100 percent of its palm oil by the end of the 2019.
The editors gave “breaking news” status to this story about Malaysia’s new wildlife survey, intended to strengthen the country’s already stringent conservation efforts. The survey is supported by the Malaysian Palm Oil Council.
Also at Expo West, the Malaysian Palm Oil Council will introduce Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil Certification (MSPO) to attendees. MSPO certification is a sustainability program initiated by the Malaysian government to ensure the implementation and importantly, to assist smallholders (~650,000 smallholders in Malaysia) in the palm plantation sector in achieving sustainability practices and certification.
Palm oil is a common ingredient in many food products, ranging from better-for-you nutrition and sport bars to crackers and healthy spreads. Palm oil is also used in soaps, lotions and other skincare products.
Overall we continue to see many challenges associated with the markets for Malaysian palm oil but we remain confident that Malaysian palm oil will continue to remain competitive, vibrant and a much sought after commodity in the coming years.
These stringent standards will soon become mandatory in Malaysia. That’s good news because more than half of the palm oil imported into the U.S is from this eco-focused country. Palm oil is Malaysia’s number one export.
Malaysian Palm Oil is favored by food industry professionals who are looking for a clean label oil because its non-GMO, nutritious and doesn’t require hydrogenation. Those in the know also appreciate Malaysian palm oil’s certified sustainability.
The Malaysian palm oil industry has said, and continues to demonstrate, that it stands strongly for planet and people.
“We want to reach out to every entity in the supply chain and of course, the end consumer, to convince them that this is sustainably produced, wholesome and nutritious edible oil.”
