The General Manager of Benso Oil Palm Plantation Limited, BOPP Samuel Avaala has called on Government and policy makers to review policies on oil palm production to create a favourable business environment.

This, he said will enable the private sector and the Government to collaborate to make the oil palm industry compete with the cocoa industry to create wealth for rural communities and also boost the economy.

Mr Avaala made the call at a durbar during which thirty-four workers, thirteen independent palm fruit suppliers and communities, and eight smallholder farmers received awards in recognition of their meritorious services to the company.
