UK's leading sustainable palm oil producer

Sime Darby Oils Liverpool is the UK's leading sustainable palm oil producers since 2010. Not only we felt responsible to set up a dedicated supply chain of traceable and certified palmoil to Europe, but also many food producers put more emphases on a supply chain security. Therefore, we built Europe's first dedicated palm oil refinery in Liverpool (UK). So, we have an integrated supply chain for our oil.

You can count on our state-of-the-art bakery fats production facility. We offer our own branded range of frying oils and bakery ingredients. Besides, we supply bulk oil products for industrial use in the food and personal care sectors. In 2015, Sime Darby Plantation Bhd, the plantation arm of Malaysia’s conglomerate Sime Darby Bhd, is the new owner of New Britain Palm Oil Ltd. In 2019, the downstream business of Sime Darby Plantation was re-branded to Sime Darby Oils. Sime Darby Oils also owns the multi-oil refinery and specialty lecithin factory Sime Darby Oils Zwijndrecht Refinery in The Netherlands.

By choosing Sime Darby Oils Liverpool Refinery for your sustainable palm oil, you can be confident that you are doing the right thing for your business, your customers, and the planet.

Where Does Our Sustainable Palm Oil Come From?

All the Palm Oil in our products comes from our own independent certified estates. Our estates are in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. We only use the finest seeds to grow our elite trees. Besides, only the best sun-ripened fruits are then selected for harvesting. We have total control of our supply chain and are able to trace all our products back to the source. From the planting of the seeds and refining in our own dedicated refinery. You can read more about our palm oil sustainability here.


We have absolute control over the quality of our raw materials and we source our palm oil from our own RSPO certified estates. Besides that we have 100 years of technical experience in vegetable oil refining. Also are we proud to have a state of the art refining facility in Liverpool (UK). We can surely guarantee you that the very highest quality palm oil based products are delivered to you!


All our products undergo stringent quality control testing and extensive evaluation. This always ensures that all finished products deliver the performance you need. Here at Sime Darby Oils we make sure the performance is at it's best!


We do not involve middlemen because of our integrated palm oil supply chain, which means no third party costs or mark-ups. Therefore we enable to keep costs to a minimum in order to create value for our customers.


Consumers are increasingly concerned about where their food is coming from. Also do they want to identify ingredients and know they are traceable to sustainable sources. Besides, EU laws now require oils to be declared by name, rather than the generic term 'vegetable oil'. All the palm oil we use can be traced back to our own RSPO certified sustainable estates and associated smallholders. Moreover, sustainability is our core business driver.
