In 1906, Aage Westenholz established Jendarata Rubber Estate in Lower Perak which became the nucleus of present day United Plantations Berhad. In subsequent years, Westenholz acquired more properties in Lower Perak which were amalgamated in 1917 as United Plantations Ltd. In 1982, Kumpulan Fima Berhad acquired controlling interests of UPB; however, the company sold its stake to Aarhus (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aarhus Oliefabrik A/S, Denmark.

From an initial planting of 8 ha of oil palm in Sungai Bernam Estate in 1918 (Tate, 1996), UPB at present has 23,346 ha of oil palms in 9 estates, all of which are located in Lower Perak. UPB also has more than 3,000 ha of hybrid coconuts, the largest monoculture coconut area in the country.

While the principal business activity of UPB is cultivation of oil palm and other plantation crops and processing of their products, its subsidiary companies are engaged in several downstream activities such as processing of palm oil, manufacturing edible oils, fats, soap products, cocoa butter substitutes and trading in crude palm oil. Its palm oil refinery under Unitata Berhad was the first of its kind to be established in Malaysia in 1974.

It was listed on the KLSE in the following year. The core businesses of Tradewinds are plantations, manufacturing and trading, essentially in sugar refining and property.

Tradewinds is a relatively recent player in the plantations industry, its initial entry being the acquisition of Ladang Permai Sdn Bhd with 2,800 ha in Lahad Datu, Sabah. Its expansion in the industry was through further acquisitions of plantation companies, especially in East Malaysia. With the increasing plantation area, the Group established its own plantation management company, Tradewinds Plantations Services Sdn Bhd in 1995.

In 1995, Tradewinds expanded its plantations operations into Indonesia with the acquisition of 56% equity interests in P.T. Saidin Tradewinds and P.T. Bumipermai Suryalestari. In November,2002, it acquired a 56% stake in P.T. Bumibangka Lestari.

PPBOP was incorporated in January 1996 following the merger of PPB and its joint venture plantation companies in East Malaysia. The Group had chosen to invest in Sabah and Sarawak in response to the State Governments encouragement and incentives for development of plantations as a strategy to broaden their economic base. Furthermore, the location of plantations in East Malaysia would provide a competitive advantage in shipment of edible oils to the large emerging market in China.

In 2000, PPBOP expanded its operations to Indonesia through subsidiary companies PT Tidar Sungkai Sawit and PT Mustika Sempuluh in West Sumatra and Central Kailmantan respectively with a total land bank of 25,272 hectares. The planted area to date is 8,641 hectares.

Kumpulan Guthrie has a history exceeding 180 years, commencing in 1821 with the establishment of Guthrie & Co as a trading company in Singapore. The company acted as agents for 12 UK companies with plantations in then Malaya. These companies merged in 1965 as Guthrie Plc and listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE). Ownership of the company was transferred to Malaysian interests through a ‘dawn raid’ on the LSE in 1981. The new company turned public and was renamed Kumpulan Guthrie Berhad in December, 1987

At present, KGB is among the biggest plantation companies in Malaysia, with a titled area of 107,475 hectares and planted area of 92,471 hectares, of which more than 99% is under oil palm. Other core businesses of the Group are property development (including construction of the Guthrie Corridor Expressway), manufacturing (wood-based and latex-based) and Trading. KGB also owns 57.9% and 54.5% of listed plantation companies Guthrie Ropel Berhad and Highlands & Lowlands Berhad.

The Group has operations in UK, USA, Liberia Mauritius, Thailand and Indonesia. A joint venture company, P.T. Guthrie Pecconina Indonesia (with 70% KGB interest) was formed in 1995 to develop oil palm plantations in Palembang, South Sumatra. At the end of 2001, 15,517 hectares of forest land of the 60,000 ha concession have been acquired and 12,729 have been planted with oil palm. In March, 2001, KGB acquired interests in 25 companies in Holdiko Palm Plantations which has since been renamed as Minamas Plantation.

Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad (KLK) is a Malaysian multinational company involved in plantation, manufacturing, retailing and property development. Plantation remains KLK's core business. The Group also expanded downstream into resource-based manufacturing, in particular oleochemicals, cocoa processing and rubber processing.


Through Crabtree & Evelyn, a worldwide brand, the Group is involved in the manufacture and retail of personal care products, toiletries, home fragrances and fine foods. Capitalizing on the strategic location of its land bank in Malaysia, KLK has also ventured into property development. KLK is amongst the top plantation companies in Malaysia, with a land bank in excess of 360,000 acres, located in Peninsular Malaysia (160,000 acres), Sabah (100,000 acres) and Indonesia (100,000 acres). Oil palm is the predominant crop with an annual production of 1.9 million tones of Fresh Fruit Bunches (FFB) and which is expected to increase rapidly in the years ahead as the vast new plantings in Sabah and Indonesia are progressively brought into harvesting. Processing of the crop is carried out in KLK's own mills and refineries into crude palm oil, RBD palm olein and stearin, and kernel oil and cake.

The declining rubber area in Peninsular Malaysia, in favor of oil palm, has been made up to an extent by the new rubber area from KLK's plantations in Indonesia. This will enable KLK to maintain a steady yearly production of about 25,000 tones of premium SIR/SMR grades and latex concentrate, meeting with the ISO 9002 standards.

KLK’s history dates back to 1906 when The Kuala Lumpur Rubber Company Limited (KLR) set up a head office in London to oversee 600 hectares of rubber and some coffee planted in Malaya. KLR changed its name to Kuala Lumpur-Kepong Amalgamated (KLKA) in 1960. Following a restructuring scheme initiated by KLK’s Founder Chairman, the late Tan Sri Dato’ Lee Loy Seng to transfer the domicile of the company back to Malaysia in 1973, KLKA went into liquidation and KLK took over the assets and liabilities of KLKA.


Today, KLK is one of the major plantation companies in Malaysia with a planted area of 135,391 hectares, of which 83% is planted with oil palm and 16% is under rubber. Geographically, 45% of the planted area is located in Peninsular Malaysia, 29% in Sabah and 26% in Indonesia (in Riau Province, Sumatra and in the Island of Belitung)


While plantations have been the core business of the Group since its foundation, KLK has integrated its business operations vertically in the 1990s to minimize the impact of fluctuations in commodity prices and to add value to resource-based products. Downstream activities include the manufacture of cocoa products, rubber and wood-based products and the manufacture of oleochemicals.


KLK is also involved in non-resource-based manufacturing - the production of specialty chemicals and pharmaceutical intermediates through its London Stock Exchange listed associate company, Yule Catto & Co Plc In 1996, KLK went into retailing through the acquisition of the Crabtree & Evelyn Group which has more than 300 specialty stores in more than 27 countries.


KLK has also ventured into property development.

Currently, Austral has planted area of 55,267 hectares of oil palm, of which 28% is located in 7 estates in Peninsular Malaysia, 57% in Sarawak (14 estates in 2 complexes near Bintulu) and 15% in Indonesia (2 estates –PT MAS1 & PT MAS2). Of the 8,102 hectares planted in Indonesia, 49% have reached maturity.

In October, 2002, Austral announced its proposed merger with I&P which will result in the eventual delisting of Austral in KLSE.

Asiatic was incorporated as a private limited company on 29 September 1977, and commenced operations in 1980 as the plantation arm of Genting Berhad. In August 1982, Asiatic gained listing on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (KLSE). The principal activities of Asiatic Group include plantation and property development. Our mission is to become a leader in the plantation industry and enhance return on the Company land bank through property development activities. As at 30 June 2004, Asiatic owns 71,078 hectares of land, 80% of which is planted with oil palm. Asiatic also owns 6 oil mills, with a total milling capacity of 255 metric tonnes per hour. Asiatic has ventured into property development since 1993. The Group’s main development areas are strategically located in Johor, Melaka and Kedah.

Asiatic Development Behad’s entry into the plantation industry began with the acquisition of the Rubber Trust Group of 3 Hong Kong-domiciled companies which owned 13,700 ha of plantations in Peninsular Malaysia. It became a wholly owned subsidiary of Genting Berhad to serve as the vehicle for the hotel and casino operator’s diversification into plantations. Asiatic was listed on the KLSE in August, 1982.

Through successive acquisitions of plantation companies in Sabah from 1985, Asiatic soon became a major player in the industry. Currently, it has a land bank of more than 50,000 ha, of which 35,956 ha have been planted with oil palm (as at 31.12.2001). The Group owns 21 plantations of which 13 are located in Peninsular Malaysia and 8 in Sabah. It has 4 palm oil mills with a total capacity of 185 tones of FFB per hour.

Realizing the real estate potential of plantations around strategic urban locations, Asiatic diversified into property development in October, 1993 with the first development in Melaka. The flagship development is Indahpura in Kulai, in southern Johor.

Asiatic also ventured into manufacturing with the commissioning of an automated structural brick plant with a production capacity of 40 million bricks per year in October, 1997. Plans to set up an oil refinery project in China did not take off on account of unfavorable market conditions.

A global growing demand for edible oils resulted in an increase in the oil crops cultivation of soybean and oil palm.

Production of palm oil has also seen significant leaps in production and planting areas. World  production had almost doubled from 1990 to 2001, with Malaysia and Indonesia contributing to most of the increased production.

The Oil Palm Industry in Malaysia is  grouped into clusters covering :
1) Upstream producers,
2) Downstream producers,
3) Exporters and importers,
4) Buyers,
5) Government agencies
6) NGOs.

3.38 million hectares of oil palm planted in Malaysia in 2000 as following :

1) 60% are private ownership, particularly by plantation companies,
2) 30.5% are Government land schemes
3) 9.5% are individual smallholders.

FELDA : The largest upstream player is the Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) which was established in 1956 with the socio-economic mandate of developing Malaysia agricultural land for the rural poor and landless.

Felda accounts for 17.7% of the total planted area and 20.6% of the palm oil produced in Malaysia in 2001.

Plantation companies vary in size from a few hundred hectares to more than 100,000 hectares.

The 4 largest companies in Malaysia in terms of planted area are :
1) Kumpulan Guthrie Berhad
2) Golden Hope Plantations Berhad
3) IOI Corporation Berhad
4) Sime Darby Berhad

Colonial Era - Many present day plantation companies have their beginnings in the colonial era at the turn of the 20th century when English and other European entrepreneurs transformed forest land into tea and coffee and rubber estates.

Amongst the ‘old’ colonial companies are
1) Kumpulan Guthrie Berhad,
2) Golden Hope Plantations Berhad,
3) Sime Darby Berhad,
4) Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad and
5) United Plantations Berhad.

Since the 1970s, several ‘home grown’ companies have entered the industry, the most notable example being IOI Corporation Berhad which started form zero base in 1983 to become one of the largest plantation companies today.

The equity of plantation companies in the country is largely under Malaysian ownership, the largest investors being the national equity corporation, Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) and the Employees Provident Fund (EPF).

PNB has substantial holdings in seven major plantation companies while EPF which provide retirement benefits for its members has made substantial investments in more than 14 plantation companies listed on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange.

Only a few companies have substantial controlling foreign shareholding, examples being United Plantations Berhad and Pamol Plantatins Sdn Bhd (recently announced to dispose all its plantations in the Malaysia)

Besides production of crude palm oil, many companies are also involved in downstream production activities along the supply chain, such as palm oil refining, production of edible oil and palm-based products and manufacture of basic oleo chemicals. The larger companies have also expanded their downstream operations offshore by establishing palm oil refineries in consuming countries such as India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, China and Egypt. Recently, two plantation companies established their presence in edible oils in Europe; Golden Hope Plantations Berhad acquired Unlilever’s Unimills BV which is second largest processor of edible oils in Europe while IOI Corporation Berhad took control of Loders Croklaan BV, a global producer and supplier of specialty oils and fats. Moving in the opposite direction, several companies have ventured into establishment of oil palm plantations off-shore, particularly in Indonesia to take advantage of the availability of land and workers and lower cost of production. The biggest player in this context is Kumpulan Guthrie Berhad which acquired about 200,000 hectares in Minamas Plantations in 2001.
