Palm oil is of strategic importance as it is used in the production of more than half of the products sold in supermarkets globally. The continuous importance of Crude Palm Oil (CPO) for food, biofuel and cosmetics purposes has led to uptick in its demand universally. Palm oil remains the cheapest and most edible vegetable oil globally. The oil palm tree produces 4.95 ton of edible oil per hectare (ha), six times more than the rapeseed tree, the next highest. In addition to its use as cooking oil, it is also used in the manufacture of soaps and detergents, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, biscuits, biodiesel among others.
