The Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC) is a corporate body with a mission to promote the market expansion of Malaysian palm oil and its products.
Their Kolkata Blogger’s Program was both informative and engaging. It involved numerous intriguing activities, contests and puzzles.
It started with some knowledge sharing sessions on Palm Oil and then it moved on to a few nerve racking puzzles, blind fold food tatsting and salad making. The afternoon ended with a sumptuous meal at Barbeque Nation. The restaurants which participated are – Barbeque Nation, Oasis, Trincas and Moccambo.
