Overview of Palm Oil Market in Pakistan
Small Oil Refinery Plant suitable for Crude Palm Oil
Pakistan has more than 10 palm oil refineries with a total production capacity of 5250 ton/day. Pakistan Edible Oil Refiners Association (PEORA) estimated that these palm oil refining factories can processing up to 1.5 million tonnes of crude palm oil (CPO) per year.
Although Pakistan has oil & fat industry locally, the production is simply not enough to meet its growing demands of domestic market. Imported oil & fact still play an important role in Pakistan. About 2 million tonnes of oils and fats (palm oil & Palm kernel oil) are imported annually. Among them, palm oil imports are the largest, which constituted more than 95% of the edible oils imported into Pakistan. As such, it is forecasted that palm oil will continue to dominate Pakistan’s oils and fats imports in the future. And palm oil refining will be one of Pakistan's most promising investments.

The main application of palm oil in Pakistan is for the production of vanaspati. Vanaspati is generally preferred with its granular or coarse structure as it appears to be similar to ghee. It has a wide application in Pakistan as it can be used as bakery fat, cooking fat and even for frying. The usage of palm oil products for other applications particularly in the food industry can provide potentials for market expansion in Pakistan. In fact, the food industry is the second largest industry in Pakistan after the textile industry. In-house technical seminars for manufacturers will be organised to promote the usage of palm oil products in their formula-tions, besides developing custom-made formulation to meet their requirements.
