No Compromise on Products Associated with Palm Oil Boycott Campaign – Armizan

BANGI: The Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDN) will not compromise on products labeled with the boycott campaign against palm oil products.

Its minister, Datuk Armizan Mohd Ali, said the palm oil industry is the largest contributor to the country’s economy, and his ministry will enforce strict measures against any products associated with the campaign.

He clarified that legislation related to actions perceived as discriminating against palm oil products already exists, and he welcomed cross-ministerial and agency cooperation to strengthen enforcement against products involved in the boycott campaign.

“This includes the initial aspect of entry of goods discriminating against palm oil-related products, so I believe this cooperation will complement the enforcement ecosystem.

“It’s not just when the goods have arrived in the country and at business premises, but supervision begins at our entry points,” he said when met at the Opening Ceremony of the First Branch of Richiamo Mart Sdn Bhd at Plaza Bangi Perdana on Sunday.

Earlier, the Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities issued a stern warning to retailers, wholesalers, and importers in the country not to sell, distribute, or import products labeled with the boycott campaign against palm oil products.

The warning came after KPDN raided a convenience store in Putrajaya suspected of selling food products labeled ‘No Palm Oil’ (NPO) or ‘Tiada Minyak Sawit’ on the packaging.
