KUALA LUMPUR: Sime Darby Plantation (SDP), the world’s biggest producer of certified sustainable palm oil, has launched ‘Open Palm’ – an online dashboard that provides critical information on the traceability of its supply chain.

SDP said in a statement that Open Palm offered its customers access to key data on the origin of all palm products that went through SDP refineries, from its various oil palm mills right down to its plantations and third-party plantations.

Its managing director Datuk Franki Anthony Dass described it as a significant milestone for Sime Darby Plantation in its efforts to provide more value to its discerning customers.

“In addition to our enduring commitment to promote sustainable products and practices in this industry, we also seek to demonstrate the integrity of our supply chain. Open Palm will allow our clients to trace and assess the origin of our palm oil products,” he said.
