Corporate Social Responsibility

Plasma Programme | KENCANA AGRI

The Plasma Programme is an initiative by the Indonesian Government that seeks to encourage plantation owners in Indonesia to provide economic and social assistance to surrounding villagers (small landholders) by helping them increase their income and welfare. Under the Plasma Programme, Kencana is committed to help the villagers till their land and purchase FFB from them at a price set by a pricing committee established by the Indonesian government.

Through our Plasma Programme, over 3,800 local villagers who were previously plantation workers have now become new plantation owners. As plantation owners, local villagers benefit economically and socially with increased incomes and better welfare. They also receive training and education in oil palm cultivation. We believe that the improvement in their income will have a multiplier effect on the economy of the entire local community.
