The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), a multi-stakeholder organization that promotes sustainable practices in the palm oil industry, will convene its 11th annual meeting at the Santika Premiere Dyandra Hotel and Convention in Medan, North Sumatra, on Nov.12-14 to discuss the revised RSPO principles and criteria for the development of the commodity.

RSPO secretary-general Darrel Webber announced on Tuesday the meeting would accommodate delegates from around the world representing various stakeholders and interest groups to explore issues and challenges faced by the industry.

'€œWe do still have a long way ahead of us in achieving our goal in making sustainable palm oil the norm in the market, and the upcoming conference will be an effective forum for all stakeholders--palm oil producers, processors, traders, consumers, bankers and investors and NGOs--to harmonize their vision,'€ Webber said in a statement.

The RSPO tenth annual meeting in Singapore last year was attended by 800 delegates from 37 countries, he added.
