NABAWAN: Deputy Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities Datuk Chan Foong Hin explained that obtaining the Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) certification and Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) will not only enhance the quality of palm oil but also help small palm oil farmers increase their income.

He pointed out that as global awareness of sustainable development principles continues to rise, many major importing countries have set strict trade conditions for commodity and food-exporting nations to ensure that the products they import meet sustainable development standards.

“Therefore, ensuring that Malaysian palm oil meets sustainable standards is of utmost importance. This will not only guarantee and expand international markets but also solidify Malaysia’s reputation for high-quality palm oil.,”he said at the Strengthening Program for Sustainable Palm Oil Certification here recently.

He said : “In order to ensure that small farmers can keep up with international standards and meet global market demands, the Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities, through the Malaysian Palm Oil Board, actively assists small farmers in joining the Sustainable Palm Oil Cluster (SPOC) and obtaining the MSPO certification.”
