Unilever has suspended purchasing palm oil from Sawit Sumbermas Sarana (SSMS) due to its recent deforestation and peatland clearance.

According to the Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO), global prices of key staple food commodities rose in April, making it the third consecutive monthly increase after four years of decline. 

India's overseas purchases of palm oil in the year starting November are set to rise nearly eight percent to a record 10 million tonnes.
