YBrs. Mohammad Hafezh bin Abdul Rahman, Chief Executive Officer, Malaysian Palm Oil Certification Council (MPOCC)

Mohammad Hafezh has been involved in the palm oil industry for the past 15 years especially in marketing, market development and market analysis. He was first involved in various market activities in the Asia Pacific, and later, in the Middle East. He engaged with various stakeholders from food manufacturers, traders, consumers and the government officials to increase the import of Malaysian palm oil into these regions and to improve palm oil’s image as a healthy and sustainable source of oils and fats.

He has brought over his expertise in market strategy and industry engagements to the Malaysian Palm Oil Certification Council (MPOCC). He links and proves to the stakeholders that Malaysian palm oil is sustainable where environmental conservation, social welfare on top of food safety are strictly adhered by the Malaysian palm oil industry players through the Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) certification.
