Palm oil is one of the most basic commodities in the world and it is found in many edible and non-edible products. Palm oil is the world’s second most consumed edible oil and accounts for 30% of the global edible oil market. Global demand has increased vastly and a recent study has shown that 10-15% of products in any grocery shop will contain some form of palm oil. About 90% of the world’s palm oil is utilized in edible applications in a variety of food products. Crude Palm Oil (CPO) when refined (RBD Palm Olein), is popular as a cooking and frying oil, shortening and vanaspati as well as a minor component in fat blends. Palm oil also has a high solid glyceride content which gives it a desirable consistency with hydrogenation, making it a popular choice in manufactured food products.

As a major importer, exporter, supplier and manufacturer of palm oil, palm olein, palm refined products and oleo chemicals, Agritrade has a significant market presence in the palm oil industry with a well-established customer base worldwide in countries that include India, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Indonesia.

Palm Oil Source – Plantations and Oil Mills

Agritrade’s niche in the palm business is centered around our ability to source for good quality oil direct from the plantations and oil mills of Malaysia and Indonesia. Agritrade has many joint ventures with oil palm plantations, mills and refineries for sourcing crude palm oil and the manufacture of end-user products from crude palm oil and palm kernel oil.

To ensure the steady supply of crude palm oil, Agritrade off-takes most of the oil, by tying up with the oil mills in Indonesia & Malaysia. This complete supply chain of palm oil ensures the economics of the operations to allow for the maximization of profit margins. With better control over the quality of the oil throughout the whole production cycle increases efficiencies to produce a wider variety of palm oil products for a more global and wider market outreach.

 

Palm Oil Processing – Refineries, Factories, Plants and Tolling


Further to the sourcing of oil palm fruits (Fresh Fruit Bunches) from the plantations and crushing them into CPO in the oil mills, Agritrade also jointly operates through tolling and off-taking several palm oil processing plants in Indonesia, Malaysia and India. Agritrade mainly supports two kinds of end-users that process and refine the palm oil for edible purposes in their plants and edible oil refineries and also industries that manufacture non-edible oleo chemicals and bio fuels etc. These plants and factories process palm oil into RBD (refined, bleached and deodorised) palm oil, RBD palm olein, RBD palm stearin, specialty fats, oleo chemicals and even biodiesel products. These palm oil and palm related products are used all over the world by many manufacturing industries producing edible oils, food & confectioneries, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, bio fuel and animal feeds.

Agritrade has been trading palm oil for the past 30 years and has an extensive global network of suppliers and customers that is steadily growing.
