FOOD HUNT WITH MALAYSIAN PALM OIL COUNCIL ( MPOC ) !!!
Recently I was invited for a fabulous fun event named, “Food Hunt” sponsored by #MPOC (Malaysian Palm Oil Council) in collaboration with Six sigma . The event was mainly to spread awareness on the benefits of palm oil ,its existence in our day to day life and the misconception we have about palm oil . I never knew palm oil is used extensively in Haldiram savories ,chips ,Good Day biscuits ,Nutella ,Ferrero Rocher ,cosmetics etc. And all these days i thought i have never used palm oil .. i am sure most of you too think the same .. isn't it ?? The event was a real eye-opener for most of us who considered Palm oil as unhealthy cheap oil used in low class street food !!Palm oil is basically an edible vegetable oil derived from the fruit of the palm tree . Malaysia and Indonesia are the major palm oil producers accounting to 85% of global palm oil production .Initially when it entered Indian market, it was sold in Govt Ration shop and got all the negative popularity .. Thx to unhygenic handling and poor packaging.And since it is priced low when compared to olive oil sunflower oil and the likes of it , people declared that cheap = bad oil . Now MPOC is actively working on erasing all the negative misconception associated with palm oil and trying to educate people as how healthy palm oil is in comparison to olive oil , sunflower etc . The event was led by Bhavna Shah from MPOC India who patiently answered all our questions and enlightened us about the benefits of using Palm oil .
Once we were done making the salad we got our next clue card which led us the Empire hotel .. a few building away from Hoppipola . One of the team member had to eat a meetha paan . The next clue card would be given only after the pan was emptied completely .
Big thanks to Priyanka Patel from Six Sigma Events for associating with Bhavna Shah from MPOC and having us over .
