Will Pandemic And US Customs Ban Derail Sime Darby Oils' Ambitions?

Sime Darby Oils is the downstream arm of Sime Darby Plantations, the world's largest palm oil plantation company by planted area.

Last year on The Breakfast Grille, we talked about Sime Darby Oils’ ambitious plans to play a bigger part in contributing to the overall Group's bottom line, but a year later, has that been derailed by the pandemic and a ban from the US Customs and Border Protection following allegations of forced labour?

Roshan Kanesan speaks to SDO's Managing Director Haris Arshad to find out.
