About LoveMYPalmOil Campaign
LoveMYPalmOil is a campaign organised by the Malaysian Palm Oil Council in collaboration with IOI Corporation Berhad to instill a national appreciation and raise awareness for the commodity of palm oil.
Palm oil has been wrongfully depicted in the media across the European region and by the European Delegated Act. The campaign wishes to ensure that palm oil is supported by the right voices and is not discriminated.
The commodity of palm oil plays an integral part of our average lives, being an ingredient of everything from consumables and non-consumables such as cosmetic and personal care products.
It is also high in the value of health benefits; free of trans fats and genetically modified organisms, rich in antioxidants and well balanced in saturated and unsaturated fats to name a few.
In Malaysia, efforts to “give back” to the community and to nature have already been conducted, such as replantings in Sabah and adherence to the regulations of palm oil production to ensure the minimisation of environmental damage.
Ultimately, the LoveMYPalmOil Campaign strives to put the message out there that banning palm oil is an extreme measure that simply is not right. The answer lies within proper planning and execution to ensure sustainable production of the commodity and Malaysia has proven its consistency in this regard.
