SUSTAINABILITY AND A POSITIVE FUTURE

OIL PALM PLANTATION DEVELOPMENT AND MANAGEMENT

Decades of hands-on experience, knowledge, and expertise in land selection, use of suitable high yield planting materials, technical management, harvesting and understanding the various climate and environmental factors play a significant role in East West One Group’s success and achievement thus far. Both in Sabah, Malaysia and Indonesia, much of the group’s business processes have been managed and integrated with each other in order to maximize the production and harvesting of fresh fruit bunches based on the planned and desired production levels.

From land development to soil and water management East West One Group’s experienced management and technical team sees to expansion of estates and plantation landbank managed through the years.

OIL PALM SEEDLING CULTIVATION AND DISTRIBUTION

Our operations in Sabah, Malaysia and Indonesia include the facilities needed to cultivate oil palm seedlings, grow new oil palm trees, and efficiently manage our oil palm plantations in order to produce high yield fresh fruit bunches (FFB). Strict standards in culling and quality control at the nurseries allow East West One Group to reap the rewards of high yield harvests.

East West One Group continues to invest in new and exceptional high yield planting materials to help boost output and greatly maximizes the efficient use of the group’s oil palm plantation landbanks without the need for over-planting. The group’s goal remains to continuously raise productivity on existing landbanks in order to deliver higher oil yields and earnings without having to increase our hectarage.

Through the years, much of the South East Asian region has occasionally experienced extreme weather conditions including heavy downpour and drier than usual weather along with heat waves and the lingering effects of these extreme weather phenomenon that could hurt production. However, East West One Group has seen the benefits the stringent long-term planning by the group’s experienced management and technical team come to fruition as the group continues to achieve our goals the desired production levels.

FRESH FRUIT BUNCHES COLLECTION CENTRES

East West One Group continues to enjoy an uptrend in yield and production of FFB through consistent management and operation of the group’s matured oil palm landbanks. In order to produce high quality crude palm oil (CPO), producers require high quality and high yield from FFB. The many testimonials of East West One Group’s FFB quality in relation to very satisfactory ripeness, grading, and a high oil extraction rate (OER) represent one of East West One Group’s value incentives for many CPO producers.

East West One Group’s FFB collection centres also serve as collection hubs not just for the group’s oil palm plantations, but also for other smallholders. East West One Group’s FFB collection centres represent one of the group’s strategies to move downstream along the oil palm value chain.
