The World's Largest Palm Oil Exporter
Malaysia currently accounts for 41 % of world palm oil production and 47% of world exports, and therefore also for 11% and 25% of the world's total production and exports of oils and fats. As the biggest producer and exporter of palm oil and palm oil products, Malaysia has an important role to play in fulfilling the growing global need for oils and fats in general.
The refining of crude palm oil commenced in the early 70s in response to Government's call for increased industrialization. The emergence of refineries marked the introduction of a wide range of processed palm oil products.
