This article highlights the importance of the role that palm oil plays in meeting the demand for oils and fats worldwide for food. On top of this food demand, the demand for vegetable oils for biofuels, which now absorb over 10% of world oil and fat supplies, has rapidly increased.

The current high world sugar prices reflect a major imbalance between global supply and demand, which has reduced stocks to very low levels. Although it remains to be seen whether prices will rise much above current values, it is clear that the supply chain will remain stretched throughout 2010 and this will help to maintain prices at a high level.

The contribution of Latin America to oil-in-seed output, vegetable oil output, and vegetable oil demand worldwide, is discussed. Latin America's soybean share of world oil output was only 13.5% in 2010, which contrasts with its share of 20.9% of global oil-in-seed production in the same year. The oil content of Latin American output has increased at over 6% per annum since 2000, but Southeast Asia has grown even faster, thanks to the surge in oil palm areas. Latin American oil-in-seed production has averaged over 6% compound annual growth since 2000, which has been surpassed only by Southeast Asia's growth. Latin America's share of world oil consumption in 2011 is little changed from the region's 2000 level of over 8%. Focusing on food demand for oils, it is discovered that Latin America has lagged well behind many other regions in its growth rate since 2000.
