MSPO Malaysia Sustainable Palm Oil Certification


Being the second largest producer of palm oil in the world, it is only natural for Malaysia to be under the radar of environmentalists and green campaigners regarding the production of palm oil in a sustainable manner.

The MSPO Certification Scheme is the national scheme that has been developed to provide assurance that the management of oil palm cultivation and production of palm oil and palm oil products in Malaysia are carried out in a responsible manner, and are not limited to just applying the standard good agricultural practices. The MSPO Certification Scheme also ensures that people who work in plantations, smallholdings and palm oil processing facilities are taken care of by the management in terms of health and safety, are paid fairly and are provided with adequate and appropriate training.
