Over 1,800 participants from the global oils and fats fraternity will be attending the four-day International Palm Oil Congress 2009 (PIPOC 2009) beginning today, organised by the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB), according to a report in a local business paper.

The bi-annual event, first initiated in 1984, has grown into the world’s single largest palm oil event deliberating on technological breakthrough and advancements in the oil palm sector as well as on developments affecting the oils and fats industries, said the StarBiz.

MPOB chairman Sabri Ahmad was quoted by the daily as saying PIPOC had turned into a global forum and a landmark event over the past 25 years as it benchmarked the oil palm industry in terms of advances in research and scientific findings by MPOB, the oil palm industry and other institutions, and provided an update on the latest global palm oil development.

PIPOC 2009, themed “Palm Oil – Balancing Ecologics with Economics,” will focus on palm oil as the powerhouse economy and advances in technological innovations.

Sabri told StarBiz that PIPOC provided a sound platform for palm oil industry players, among others, to share the latest technological research breakthrough and innovations, increasing sustainability challenges and networking among stakeholders from planters, millers, refineries, traders, food processors, oleo and speciality chemicals to non-governmental agencies, government agencies and regulators.
