SYPNOPSIS

The oil palm industry forms the economic backbone of Malaysia and continues to face new challenges in the face of globalization. Rapid responses are needed to meet the increasing challenges of the industry as they unfold. MPOB as the custodian of the oil palm industry is entrusted with meeting these challenges through excellence in R&D and services. MPOB has more than three decades of concerted effort in research and development along the entire value chain. Several technologies have made the transition from the laboratory to the market place. Ecologically and economically sustainable development has become the guiding philosophy of the oil palm industry and MPOB is playing a facilitating role in this endeavor. MPOB’s commitment has been recognized and rewarded through numerous awards, the latest of which is the 2010 Frost & Sullivan Award for Excellence in Research and Innovation. MPOB’s contributions are diverse, yet they serve a single goal, as expressed by its mission statement: “To enhance the well-being of the Malaysian oil palm industry through research, development and excellent services.”

Participants of this visit will also be briefed on MPOB’s latest development in addition to the pilot plant tours at MPOB’s premises.
