Oil palms were introduced to Southeast Asia by European traders in the early 19th century, where the climate is more humid and therefore more conducive to oil palm growth.

Indonesia and Malaysia produce more than 85% of the world’s palm oil, while India and China are two of the largest importers of palm oil globally.
