Background

Palm Oil is obtained from the flesh of the oil palm (Elaeis guineesis), which belongs to the Palm tree familiy Arecaceae and can grow to be up to 30 meters tall. The fruit states have a weight up to 30 kilograms and are harvested year-round. Native to Africa, the oil palm is now mainly grown in Indonesia and Malaysia.
