The price of palm kernel expeller (PKE) moves at the lower range as compared to other oilmeals, particularly soyabean meal. The main use of PKE as ingredients in ruminant feedstuff does not fetch a good price for PKE due to the highly competitive world oilmeals market. Applications of PKE in the food sector with technology advancement provide some hope for PKE to obtain a better price in the future. The widening uses and the improved quality of PKE will improve the market of PKE either locally or internationally.
