What comes to your mind when you first hear the word “palm oil”? In various levels of discussion, palm oil is always synonymous with issues of deforestation, gas emissions, exploitation, and even extinction. Not a few people criticize the existence of palm oil, which tends to trivialize the potential and truth that should be accepted by the wider community. This is what is called the post-truth era. The truth is even sorted out and denied to support the grand narrative of the discourse that wants to be conveyed. If we want to see more clearly, palm oil has a lot of influence in our lives. Apart from being the main driver of the Indonesian economy, the existence of palm oil is able to provide hope for millions of Indonesians. In addition to the economic impact, palm fruits contain many health benefits that play an important role in our diet. By recognizing palm oil as a useful resource, we can see the gaps in the industry that can be maximized so that its management becomes much wiser not only for humans, but also for the environment. Recognition of these problems shows what we need to improve, both in terms of small and large-scale policy makers, to the wisdom as consumers and reapers of the blessings of palm oil.This book is here to answer the question of an objective view of palm oil and a wisely run industry. In addition to sustainable palm oil plantations, this book also provides an accurate description of the various palm oil processing activities and the drivers of the palm oil industry.
