PNG has a number of oil palm plantations spread across several Provinces including West New Britain, Milne Bay and Northern (Oro).

In February 2010 Cargills sold its three PNG oil palm operations to PNGs largest oil palm company, New Britain Palm Oil Limited for US$175 million. NBPOL is controlled by Malaysian State owned enterprise, Kulim.  

NBPOL is a member of the controversial Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil which was established by WWF (World Wildlife Fund) and is accused of greenwashing the oil palm industry.

You can follow the latest oil palm developments in PNG through the PNG Oil Palm Watch profile on Facebook.
