Abstract This report analyses the business opportunities of the oilseed and edible oil sector in Myanmar as well as the food safety control system. Myanmar is a significant producer of oilseed specialities. It is world’s largest producer of sesame seeds, ranks on the sixth position for groundnut production and for mustard seeds on the third position. However, the exports are insignificant. The food safety control system of this sector is developed weakly. Myanmar has huge opportunities on the world market: foreign currency earnings are in the magnitude of country’s total trade deficit by exporting sesame oil substituted by importing a same amount of palm oil.
