PALMOILMAGAZINE, SURABAYA – The #YoungElaeis program, organized by the Council of Palm Oil Producing Countries (CPOPC), aimed to bring together youth representatives from various selected countries, appointing them as young ambassadors to advocate for the values of sustainable palm oil.
This program was specifically designed for young individuals, ranging from high school students to university seniors. It served as part of the series of events commemorating the 8th anniversary of CPOPC on November 21, 2023.
Rizal Affandi Lukman, the General Secretary of CPOPC, highlighted the organization’s commitment to providing accurate information about the palm oil industry at every level. With the support of the youth, the initiative aspires to enhance people’s understanding and dispel misconceptions about the palm oil industry.

Juliette Marie Martinez of Honduras said that for all these years, many countries cooperated better to confirm that palm oil could be exported in the globe and the world could enjoy palm oil market access, which was produced sustainably.
But it needs to solve the issues about the advantages from consumers and producer countries. It is time to navigate to develop self-defense from uncertain supply and price. “The support from the government is good to improve sustainable development,” she said.
George Tutu-Yeboah from Ghana said that everything could clearly see the information to what happened in Africa through digital platform. CPOPC has re-created sustainable palm oil practice initiative and important projects to develop the same action.
One can be done, George Tutu-Yeboah continued was that he himself tried to deliver the goodness of palm oil for the closest environments, such as, family and friends. “I told about palm oil industries to my families and friends,” he said.
He continued this should be the solution to encourage the same action with the finalists to inform what actually palm oil industries have done. “Inform who we are (palm oil industries) actually,” he said.
