Palm oil comes home

When you think of palm oil, you probably think of countries like Malaysia or Indonesia.  Quite rightly…as that’s where more than 90% of the world’s oil comes from.  But land is quickly running out in these countries and as demand for the oil increases, companies are flocking to Africa instead.  More specifically West Africa – where, in fact, palm oil originates from.  The BBC’s Tamasin Ford went to visit a palm oil plantation in Ivory Coast for Focus on Africa.
