Golden Agri-Resources (GAR) is a leading palm-based seed-to-shelf agribusiness with a commitment to responsible palm oil production.
In Indonesia, GAR’s primary activities include cultivating oil palms, extracting crude palm oil (CPO), refining edible oils, manufacturing quality consumer products, oleochemicals, specialty fats, and biodiesel. We also merchandise palm products world-wide and have recently launched a sugar distribution business that leverages our extensive shipping and logistics capabilities. GAR also operates on-shore refining facilities in key markets such as China and India.
GAR owns 30 consumer brands that enjoy wide market recognition. With operations in 12 countries, and an expansive global footprint that spans over 70 countries worldwide including the USA, Europe, India, China and the Middle East, GAR is one of the largest palm oil-based companies in the world.
GAR believes that fostering innovation and investing in technology is critical in enhancing our competitive edge. From upstream operations such as procurement, research and development and plantation management and harvesting, to downstream operations such as processing, merchandising and our ever-expanding access to domestic and international markets, our size allows GAR to enjoy economies of scale and to develop precision and expertise at each step of our fully-integrated value chain. This, in turn, makes us one of the most efficient palm oil plantation companies in the world, both in terms of productivity and operating costs. Our drive towards efficiency and innovation also positions GAR as an industry leader for responsible operations and sustainable growth.

Our biodiesel plants were first established in 2016, in alignment with the Indonesian government’s biodiesel policy. We operate one biodiesel plant near Jakarta and another one in South Kalimantan with a total capacity of 600,000 tonnes per annum.
Dami Mas is one of the top DxP seed suppliers in Indonesia with an annual production of 25 million germinated seeds. The Dami Mas DxP seed is renowned for its high yields as well as its high oil extraction ratios—two traits much sought after by oil palm growers.
The success of our seed business can be attributed to our strong focus on R&D and innovations pioneered by Plant Production and Biotechnology Division at the SMART Research Institute (SMARTRI).
Golden-Agri Maritime (GM) is the chartering arm of GAR. GM manages GAR’s transportation needs for our international palm oil trade as well as for our sugar distribution business. We build intelligent shipping and logistics solutions with ship owners.
