INDONESIA PALM OIL SUPPLIERS
World’s Largest Crude Palm Oil (CPO) Producer
In 2006 INDONESIA became the world’s largest crude palm oil (CPO) producer.
It was the much increased CPO production in higher fresh fruit bunches yield and oil extraction rates that set Indonesia far ahead from Malaysia.
Within five years, Indonesia targeted to produce 27 million tonnes annually while Malaysia production is expected at 18 million tonnes.
60% of the 7 million ha total planted area is owned by private companies, many have seeked listing on the Stock Exchange of Singapore (SGX) and the Jakarta Stock Exchange (JSX).
While Malaysia may no longer reign as the world’s number one CPO producer, it must try its best not to lose out on its current spot as the world’s largest exporter of palm oil products.

Socfin SA is a Belgian concern having it’s origins from the Belgian Congo
back in the 1890’s, and acquiring its first Malaysian plantation in 1905. Adrian
Hallet, a founder of Socfin, planted the first commercial oil palm plantation in
Indonesia in 1911. The parent holding company of the Socfin group is Socfinal
based in Luxembourg. The group presently has interests in plantation companies
throughout Ivory Coast, Liberia, Nigeria, Cameroon, Guinea, Kenya and Indonesia.
These interests usually involve a majority shareholding and are always managed

This cautious approach respects the environment and the culture of the country in which it is operating. As such International Development Banks like DEG often participate in the groups' investments.

Sawit Watch was set up in 1998 and since then, we have built a network of
over 50 members and local contacts working with dozens of local communities in
Sumatra, Kalimantan and Sulawesi. Our mandate is based on the call to support
local communities who have lost their forests and livelihoods because of
large-scale oil palm expansion and for those in forestlands who continue to
resist this development. Through this mandate we hope to contribute to the
conservation and restoration of Indonesia’s forests and to promote the best deal
for those communities that choose to live with oil palm plantations.
Sawit Watch focuses on raising community awareness. This involves capacity building in the form of meetings and training aimed to inform community members about the impacts of oil palm plantations. The second step is to assist communities in securing their land rights and sustaining traditional community (adat) laws. This is done through conflict resolution and lobbying government at the national and local level for land reform and community sovereignty over natural resource management. The third step is to assist communities in developing or maintaining economically, socially and ecologically sustainable land/forest management.
