The Oil Palm

The Oil Palm

The Oil Palm​ is a project of the Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC), dedicated to promoting the benefits of Malaysian Palm Oil, the world’s essential oilseed crop.

 

Malaysia is the second-largest producer of Palm Oil, and a major exporter. The Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC) represents the interests of Palm Oil growers and small farmers, in Malaysia.

 

40% of all Palm Oil plantations in Malaysia are owned or farmed by small farmers, who have benefited from oil palm cultivation. Palm Oil has been a major factor in Malaysia reducing poverty from 50% in the 1960s, down to less than 5% today. The Palm Oil industry directly employs more than 570,000 people, with another 290,000 people employed downstream.

 

The Oil Palm is home to educational content on Malaysian Palm Oil focused on Health​; Fitness​; Cuisine​; Sustainability​; and Economy​.
