The Palm Oil Research Institute of Malaysia - A Unique Research Unit

  • Augustine S. H. Ong


PORIM was established in 1979 out of the need to provide R&D support for the rapidly growing palm oil industry. Research in palm oil has been carried out both privately and in government agencies; firstly in the Department of Agriculture and later in the Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute (MARDI). However the tremendous growth of the industry in the seventies necessitates the establishment of a fully committed single crop Research and Development Institute (RDI).
