We supply palm based cooking oils. We work DIRECT with refineries which are fully licensed with Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB). All prices are based on the daily rate announced by MPOB.
We also work with major companies which have their own bottling plants next to the refineries.

These companies deliver worldwide in retail size packing from 1 lite to 20 litre - you can see the main packing sizes below. Not all refiner and bottlers pack exactly the same amounts in a container.

Some refiners deliver to many parts of the World.

Some have their own branded bottles - or OEM packing done and distributed in countries worldwide.

COOKING OIL is produced from  RBD Palm Oil and RBD Palm Olein

RBD PALM OLEIN 

RBD palm olein is obtained from fractionating refined palm oil to separate liquid parts (olein) from solid parts (stearin). It is a clear yellow liquid at room temperature.

RBD palm olein is used as cooking oil as well as frying oil for food industries such as snack food and ready-to-eat food. It is also used as a raw material for margarine and shortening.

It is important to check that you request the correct product for the country of delivery.

RBD PALM OIL

RBD palm oil is obtained from refining crude palm oil. It is a light yellow liquid and semi-solid at room temperature, melting to a clear yellow liquid on slight heating.

RBD palm oil is used as frying oil for food industries such as instant noodles and snack food. It can also be used in manufacture of margarine, shortening, vanaspathy, ice cream, condensed milk and soap.

Double Fractionated palm oil products

The palm olein is furthered fractionated to produce liquid oil with better resistance to solidification at cold climates. Iodine values denotes the unsaturation of the oil.

The higher the iodine the value (IV), the better resistance the oil has towards solidification at low temperature. Some refineries are producing two grades of Special Palm Olein, Special RBD Palm Olein IV 60 and Special RBD Palm Olein IV 62.
