Malaysia currently accounts for around 40% of world palm oil production and 44% of world exports. Malaysian palm oil has been exported to more than 150 countries. Being one of the biggest producers and exporters of palm oil and palm oil products, Malaysia has important role to play in fuelling the global need for sustainable edible oils and fats.
Europe is one of the major destinations for sustainable Malaysian palm oil and it is viewed that the demand for Malaysian palm oil will continue to grow in the region.
