Our Sustainability Progress
Palm oil is the world’s most efficient oil crop.
Our palm oil is sustainable and environment-friendly. Besides high yield of this vegetable oil provides food security. A palm oil tree produces 11 times more oil than soybean plants, ten times more than sunflower and seven times more than canola, per hectare per year. Moreover, palm oil required less land to produce the same amount of oil as other vegetable crops. You can watch an interesting video on youtube.
