2020: Making the most of a “horrible” year

  1. The palm oil sector continued to operate
    With Indonesia (and Malaysia) designating the palm oil sector as critical, the industry has mostly continued without very major disruptions in 2020. Contrast this with some other sectors globally, such as the meat-packing industry in the USA, which has suffered devastating disruptions. The ability of the palm oil sector to continue operating has meant that there have been no massive layoffs in the industry, and millions of farmers are still able to earn an income this year. The palm oil industry has also been able to continue supplying the world with an essential food ingredient, and a key component of cleaning products such as soap which play a vital role in keeping COVID-19 at bay.
