03 May, 2012 | Source: Jakarta Post

Indonesia has become the world’s biggest palm oil producer on the back of higher production of locally certified sustainable palm oil (CSPO), an international multi-stakeholder certification body says.

The top place is also attributable to the rising number of local palm oil producers joining in the sustainable certification scheme, says the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) Indonesia.

As of the first quarter of this year, local growers generated around 2.71 million tons of CSPO, overtaking Malaysia — traditionally the largest CSPO producer — which generated 2.69 million tons, RSPO Indonesia director, Desi Kusumadewi, said on Thursday.

The increase in total Indonesian output derived partly from PT Inti Indosawit Subur in Buatan, Riau, which produced a total of 54,282 tons of certified RSPO.

In 2011, the country′s output was 2.3 million tons.
