Pakistan is the 3rd largest importers of Palm Oil / Olien and the import will continue to increase due to consistent increase in population and increase in the growth of middle class. The import of oils and fats and oilseed has seen consistent growth in 2017 and the imports of edible oils are likely to be around 3 million MT by the end of 2017. Imports of soybeans in Pakistan have also seen unprecedented growth in 2017 and is likely to remain a key feature in the oils and fats mix of this market. The paper would focus on the changing dynamics and importance of this market and would predict the potential demand and growth of oils and fats in general and palm oil in particular in Pakistan.

In your presentation, based on 2017 figure, RBD Palm Olein constitute 57% of Pakistan total palm oil import while RBD PO 40%. Can you please explain why the proportion of RBD PO in Palistan import was so high. Based on global statistic RBD PO is about 10% of total palm oil import
Posted on behalf of Mr Rasheed Janmohammad : Pakistan is one of the few countries where the local population still prefers to use “vanaspati ghee” as preferred cooking and frying medium which makes RBD palm oil the most suitable feedstock for edible oil industry. As per an estimate, 65% of Pakistani population still uses vanaspati for their daily cooking needs.
