JUST weeks after Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Datuk Seri Mah Siew Keong raised his concerns about “No Palm Oil” labels in a Sept 16 article in The Star about “Ethical Labelling: The Way to Go”, the largest producer of dairy products in Denmark, Arla Foods, stated that it would remove from sale in Malaysia all products bearing “no palm oil” or “palm oil free” labels. All such labels and products, which discriminate against palm oil, are expected to be removed within 60 days.

Here, the minister explains further about such labels.
