Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil for the South Korean Market

The Malaysian Palm Oil industry is a key driver of Malaysia’s economy; providing billions in foreign exchange and employment to more than 3 million people.

The Malaysian government and palm oil industry have been proactive in ensuring that there is a balance between people, profit, and planet. This has led to the establishment of the Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) certification scheme in 2015, which signals a long-term commitment by the government and the industry towards palm oil sustainability.

MSPO is the national scheme in Malaysia for oil palm plantations, independent and organised smallholdings, and palm oil processing facilities to be certified against the requirements of the MSPO Standards. It is important to ensure that all palm oil products are sustainable and accepted by the global market. The MSPO certification scheme has been made mandatory since 2020 to ensure that the Malaysian Palm Oil industry produces its products in a sustainable way.

The Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC) is organising a seminar entitled ‘Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil for the South Korean Market’, with the aim of sharing the industry’s objectives, principles, advantages, and role in meeting sustainability requirements, as well as supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The event will also be an opportunity to address queries and questions on MSPO.
