Oils & Fats International Issue
Our January 2021 issue focuses on palm oil, including a look at Indonesia – the world’s top producer of the crop – and the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on prices, demand and supply, with a forecast for 2021.
In a special focus on rendering, we write on how the USA uses rendered protein to produce pet food, helping to reduce food waste.
We report on the global coconut market and how urgent action is needed to promote a sustainable industry.
And we take a look at China, the world’s second largest importer of edible oils, with some of the most well-developed ports globally.
In addition, the January 2021 issue includes a round-up of the latest plants and project developments around the world.
OFI’s regular mix of news, event listings and statistics also feature in this issue.
