The palm oil industry has grown steadily over the last two decades, with demand consistently outstripping supply, to become the world’s most produced and most consumed vegetable oil.
However, what are the problems associated with palm oil, and is there an environmentally sustainable way to produce it? If so, can we identify sustainable palm oil and reliably avoid investment in palm oil that is unsustainable?
These are some of the questions Dr Roan du Feu explores is his new blog on the sustainability of the palm oil industry.
