Food security and palm oil: How Malaysia helps feed the world.

Because of Malaysia’s equatorial climate, it can grow oil palm. This fertile tree produces abundant supplies of nutritious fruits year-round. Because of this high yield, it produces significantly more oil than annual crops, such as corn, soybean and canola. A single acre of oil palm produces 11 times more oil than soybeans, and 10 times more than sunflower.
