The importance of organic farming has increased due to its environmentally friendly methods and growing consumer awareness of food safety. Based on estimates, world retail sales of organic foods will reach USD 29-USD 31 billion in 2005. Producing palm oil by organic cultivation is highly possible in Malaysia since many oil palm agronomic practices in the country already have minimum environmental impacts and are moving towards even more eco-friendly methods. The command of a premium price is the main attraction for investment in organic food production.
