Palm oil is the world’s most traded vegetable oil with the largest share of global vegetable oil production. Its share has been growing, and demand for vegetable oils has more than doubled in the last 20 years as incomes have risen and urbanisation has increased the need for processed foods.
M.P. Evans makes long-term decisions investing in land, the environment, its workforce and the communities in and around its operations. It combines this with a relentless focus on operational detail to produce the maximum amount of crude palm oil from well-managed and environmentally-suitable land. We have first-class assets, a strong management team across our operations and a track record of success.
After a period of sustained investment in Indonesia, M.P. Evans stands on the threshold of a gathering acceleration in crop growth. This underpins our commitment to pay attractive returns to investors through increasing dividends.
