OVERVIEW

India is the world’s third-largest consumer and second-largest importer of edible oils, importing more than half of its demand. Due to its cost-competitiveness in 2009 almost 80% of the edible oil imports comprised of palm oil (both crude and refined). The Indonesian palm oil industry is often associated with illegal practices, such as land clearing without the necessary governmental approvals and permits, expansion outside the concession area and forest fires as a result of illegal burning. India has shown no considerable efforts to enhance the sustainability of their palm oil sources. There are, however, opportunities to engage Indian consumers, traders and importers in the sustainability issue through membership in the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).
