Sustainable Palm Oil Policy at LDC || Louis Dreyfus Company
It is not difficult to understand why palm oil has grown in importance over the past centuries. Palm can be harvested year-round. Its yield per hectare is twice that of soy, rapeseed and sunflower combined. It is also the most multitalented of vegetable oils: it is used in various consumer retail food products (from pizza to candy bars), cosmetics and personal care products (from lipstick to shampoo), biofuel and pharmaceuticals, among many others.
