10/12/2007 (Newindpress, India) - For Keralites, palm oil is a saviour turned villain.

It was a great relief for the low and middleincome groups as it saved a lot of their money.

10/12/2007 (Business Standard), New Delhi - Indian edible oil companies are said to be scouting around internationally for buying or leasing farms to grow oilseeds. This is an innovative way to deal with India’s perennial need for imports, and as a way of both reducing costs and ensuring regular supplies. India happens to be one of the world’s largest edible oil importers, and is likely to remain so for the foreseeable future. With the country’s laws on land holdings making it difficult, if not impossible, for business houses to acquire land for captive cultivation, companies have necessarily to look for land elsewhere. And if they can manage to do so in the countries from where they are already sourcing imports and where land is abundant and cheap, it helps them to cut costs as well. This should explain why some edible oil firms have either bought or are negotiating to acquire oil palm plantations in Indonesia, a key exporter of palm oil to India. The same motive of ensuring supplies at competitive prices has spurred the Solvent Extractors’ Association to visit the South American region and explore the possibility of producing other oilseeds, notably soyabean, either directly or through contract farming.
