• In order to reduce the impact of price fluctuations of palm oil at the international level; in 1980,

   Malaysia established the Kuala Lumpur Commodity Exchange Market, which now known as the

   Malaysian Derivatives Exchange. 

• The trading process is as follow: first, the traders composed of representatives from international

   commodity trading institutions, planters, refiners and consumers whom agree on a standardized

   price of palm oil, where producers and consumers will sign for sale and purchase , whilst to ensure

   delivery within a specified date. 

• This is to protect palm oil traders from price fluctuations while maintain the sustainability of palm oil

   prices to a certain extent. 

• In 2006, the average price of Malaysian palm oil was RM 1510.5 per ton.
