World Food Day 2020
Week 2 :
It’s World Food Day!
World Food Day is an international day celebrated every year around the world on 16 October in honour of the date of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1945. The day is celebrated widely by many other organizations concerned with food security.
Let’s celebrate by making healthy food choices and do our part in reducing waste. Choose sustainable food systems and livelihoods. One example that consumers can explore is Malaysian palm oil. It contains vitamin E tocopherols and tocotrienols, making it a healthy and nutritious choice. Even better, the industry itself is being made sustainable through the mandatory Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) scheme.
Food brings people together.
The Common Ingredient in Delicious Food
Malaysian Palm Oil’s versatility can be seen across diversities of food, culture, and society.
Palm oil is found in almost 50% of food products in the supermarket requiring a fat component. From chocolates to biscuits and peanut butter to ice-cream, palm oil in its various forms and derivatives are a common ingredient in these food products. This is probably the most used claim by campaigners against palm oil. In addition, palm oil is also used in the production of personal care products such as shampoo and toothpaste and in household cleaning products such as detergents and cleansers.
