InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA – Crude palm oil (CPO) price at Bursa Malaysia Derivative Exchange increased in the third session in a row, Thursday (2/6/2022). It happened for the decreasing production prediction in Malaysia, the lack of palm oil workers from Indonesia in Malaysia’s plantations where they are really critically needed.

As InfoSAWIT quoted from Reuters, the Government of Indonesia cancelled the plan to deliver workers in Malaysia’s palm oil plantations, as the Ambassador of Indonesia in Malaysia, Hermono said, last Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Malaysia Palm Oil Council (MPOC) reduced the production numbers on Wednesday. The second biggest palm oil producer in the world predicted, CPO would be remaining more than RM 6.000 (US$ 1.367,37) per ton this year.

India also cut of CPO and its derivative basic price. On the other hand, the country increased soyoil price, as one official mentioned in a statement, Tuesday night.
