Abstract

Palm oil has become one of the leading causes of deforestation in countries that are developing their economic growth. Despite the vast research and knowledge of the advantages and disadvantages of palm oil, little is known about how people perceive this information and where they would like to obtain information.
Our results indicate that there is a general lack of awareness and knowledge about palm oil and the issues surrounding it. Whilst education has played an important role in providing information, the most sought after channel is the internet and social media.
