IOI Oleochemicals

Starting from zero-base in 1980, our humble but bold initiative pioneered the palm-based oleochemical industry in the world. With the inception of our inaugural manufacturing facility, we were then the first and only oleochemical plant that produces exclusively palm-based oleochemicals. Today, the Oleochemical Division of IOI Corporation is the leading producer of vegetable oil-based fatty acids. Its production capacity per annum is approximately 780,000MT. The manufacturing facilities are suitably located in Prai and Pasir Gudang.
