As Brazil is in a region with a climate that favored the cultivation of the palm that produces such oil, it has a very high productivity, where one hectare of planting can generate about 5 tons of oil per year, a value ten times higher than that of the soy, for example. Such productivity enabled Brazil, in 2011, to occupy the ninth position among the largest producers of this oil, according to the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service.

Within the world stage, the most consumed oil in the world, presented in 2017, a commercial move higher to $ 33 billion, and, I ndia and China alone imported almost thirty percent of the total. Despite the large market and the large Brazilian production, Brazilian exports in 2017 were still very timid, amounting to approximately 52 million dollars, mainly concentrated in neighboring countries such as Colombia.
