From cooking oil to biofuel, to the oleochemicals used in food additives, soaps, cosmetics, lubricants, and textiles, palm oil and its refined derivatives touch our lives in many ways. Given the commodity’s ubiquity, we decided to perform some extraction of our own, and provide insights into the factors and dynamics to consider when analysing companies involved in the production of palm oil.

The report contains a full sector analysis for the palm oil industry and a question bank.
