KAMPAR: More than 300 oil palm smallholders in Perak were awarded sustainability certification after months of hard work to comply with the requirements to be globally recognised as sustainable palm oil producers.

Yesterday, 335 independent smallholders who voluntarily participated in the Wild Asia Group Scheme (WAGS) became the first group of smallholders to receive both the Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) and Roundtable Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certifications.
