Tighter soy oil supplies seen supporting Malaysian palm oil to $617/ton by midyear

April 16, 2018 |

With soy oil prices up 8% so far this year, higher prices are supporting other vegetable oils including palm oil, and with demand ahead of Ramadan already pricing into the market, prices could increase further.
