Globally four crops viz., oil palm, soybean, rapeseed and sunflower account for majority of the edible oils produced and consumed. Of late, there has been a perceptible crisis in production and supply of these oils. Palm oil accounts for ~40% of the supply of the four top most popular edible oils in the world, the other being soybean oil, rapeseed (canola) oil and sunflower oil. Global palm oil production slumped in 2020-21 due to migrant labour issues on plantations across Southeast Asia. Argentina, the top soy oil exporter is expected to transport lower volumes this year due to poor soybean growing season. Drought slashed Canada’s harvest of canola in 2021 and Europe also suffered crop damage, which reduced oil supplies during 2022. The unrest in Ukraine, resulted in slumping of shipments and this year’s production is expected to be disrupted since Russia and Ukraine account for 76% of the world exports. Vegetable oil shortage is a major concern for India as well. The domestic oilseeds production is not meeting the pace of increase in domestic demand for household and industrial needs. The per capita consumption of vegetable oils is rising continuously surpassing 18.7 kg/year in 2020-21. During the last two decades, edible oil consumption has increased at a compounded annual growth rate of 4.3% and is expected to continue. Besides, demand projections on the trend of expenditure and price of food items suggest that the demand for edible oil in the country will be 29.02 and 40.89 million tones for 2025 and 2050, respectively. Under this challenging situation, there is a necessity to build convergence and co-operation among all the national and international stakeholders and agencies involved in production, procurement, aggregation, processing, and marketing of vegetable oils to develop a strategic roadmap to address all the issues plaguing vegetable oil economy.

In this backdrop, Indian Council of Agricultural Research, ICAR-Indian Institute of Oilseeds Research (IIOR), and Indian Society of Oilseeds Research (ISOR) in collaboration with ICRISAT, other sister ICAR institutes and the societies engaged with vegetable oil research are jointly organizing the International Conference on Vegetable Oils (ICVO) 2023 during January 17-21, 2023 at Hyderabad, India. The conference is envisaged to be a convergent point for priority persuasion and provide a platform to deliberate on research strategies, infrastructure developmental needs, trade and value chain ecosystems, and policy perspective to promote increased vegetable oil production on short-, medium- and long-term basis at global as well as national levels. Several invited talks, plenary talks, contributory oral as well as poster presentations and technology exhibitions are planned during the International conference. Also, five satellite symposia dedicated to specific issues of major vegetable oil crops are also planned to be held during the conference. The event will be organized in association with several national and international organizations associated with oilseeds research and production.
