The EPOA Virtual Palm Oil tour is a 360 experiences that gives you an insider’s view on the production and harvesting of sustainable palm oil. Palm oil is extracted from the fruit of the oilpalm tree that grows in almost all tropical regions along the equator. The oilpalm is one of the highest yielding vegetable oils and its fresh fruit bunches can be harvested every two weeks.
This VR tour gives you the opportunity to experience an oilpalm farm yourself. See how oilpalms grow and how its fresh fruit bunches are cut from the tree. You also learn how integrated pest management and other good agricultural practices improve the farms. The smallholder farm visited in this VR tour has been certified according to the principles of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) since 2013.
