The Market Development Standing Committee (MDSC) was founded after the governance review of the Standing Committees by the RSPO Board of Governors (BoG). The main focus of the MDSC will be creating demand, aligning supply and demand, traceability, trademark promotion, communication, marketing, regional market development and supporting on ACOP and shared responsibility. There will be three Working Groups reporting to the MDSC:

  1. Outreach, Engagement and Communications Working Group (OEC WG)
  2. Regional Market Development Working Group (RMD WG)
  3. Supply Chain Traceability Working Group (SCT WG) 

For more information about these WGs, please read the Terms of Reference (ToR) below.

We wish to invite all interested stakeholders to join the WGs by sending your expression of interest to Inke van der Sluijs ([email protected]) with Dan Strechay in copy ([email protected]). 

Please note that nominations close on 3 April 2020 (5.30 pm MYT).
