We also trade in palm kernel extract (PKE), sourcing from Indonesia and Malaysia, and merchandizing to Vietnam, China, Pakistan and Thailand.

Our key oilseeds assets in the region are two refineries, one biodiesel plant and a bulking station and port in Indonesia.

Committed to Sustainability

In addition to our strong merchandizing capabilities, growing product portfolio and reputation for reliability and integrity, our leading position in grains and oilseeds is also connected with our commitment to responsible sourcing, traceable supply chains and sustainable business practices globally.

Increasing traceability in our palm and soy operations is also central to our sustainability efforts, to encourage responsible land use and non-conversion of native vegetation for soy and palm cultivation.
