Transforming Plantation

As an organisation that is constantly evolving through times, we are moving the palm oil industry forward by incorporating modern technologies such as drones and mechanisation into our core business to stay competitive and resilient.

Guided by our vision, “Vision 30:30”, we aim to achieve 30 tonnes per hectare fruit yield and 30% crude extractives while maintaining principles of sustainable development.

With these transformations, we are able to further leverage our expertise in plantations to expand into agribusiness activities involving agro farming, livestock, and trading and services.
