In Malaysia, SGS has opened a new agricultural laboratory. Located in Bintulu, Sarawak, this new facility is approved by the MPOB (Malaysia Palm Oil Board) to perform refined palm oil and crude palm oil testing according to the PORAM specification.

Sarawak is major player in the global palm oil industry, with almost 1 million hectares planted producing 1.5 million tonnes annually. SGS’s new laboratory is the first independent laboratory in Bintulu to perform palm oil testing. It is located within a 30 km radius of four palm oil refineries and the Tanjung Kidurong port area, which enables us to provide a quick turnaround of results and allows our clients to make timely and effective commercial decisions.

As well as Bintulu laboratory, we also have agricultural laboratories in Pasir Gudang, Port Klang, Kuala Lumpur and Lahat Datu, which have served the palm oil industry in Malaysia for more than 30 years. In addition to PORAM testing, our laboratories have the capability to test and analyse for the following:

  • Pesticide residues
  • Heavy metals
  • GMO
  • Antioxidants
  • Others

Meet the requirements of international palm oil markets with PORAM testing from our highly qualified local staff.
