Kuching: A supermarket here has been directed to remove products with anti-palm oil labelling from its shelves following complaints from the oil palm industry.

The state Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry has instructed the supermarket to stop selling the products after inspecting the premises on Wednesday.
