Malaysian palm oil stocks fell to seven-month low on higher demand and exports

May 15, 2018 |

In Malaysia, Reuters reports that palm oil stocks fell to 2.17 million metric tons as of late April, down more than 6% since March and the lowest seen in seven months thanks to higher demand as petroleum prices rise.

Exports also rose in April thanks to an export duty waiver on palm oil.
