It is the policy of the Group to produce quality palm oil and timber related products to the satisfaction of our valued customers.
Our quality focus starts from every aspect of our best agricultural practices and milling activities right until our products are delivered to the satisfaction of our valued customers. We continue to invest in the latest technology and high-end machineries to ensure higher efficiency and to produce high quality products for our customers. In each of our mills, we have fully-equipped laboratory to monitor the quality of our finished products.
In the reporting year, our employees (through their various services in the Group) were recipients of RM89.9 million in employee benefits. The Group also contributed over RM96.7 million to the government through various taxes, cesses and logs royalty.
From the total revenue of RM810.8 million, 20% or RM162.6 million was channeled to the purchase of spare parts, diesel, fertilisers and chemicals, repair and maintenance and payment of utilities and office supplies to meet the needs of the overall business. Inevitably, this has helped the local economy both directly and indirectly.
The Group also actively purchased FFB from surrounding plantations and smallholders to the tune of RM52.5 million during the year.
