Integrated business model provides robust profit base
GAR’s integrated operations focus on the technology-driven production and distribution of an extensive portfolio of palm-based products. GAR encompasses an efficient end-to-end supply chain, from responsible production to global delivery. Our primary activities start from cultivating 536 thousand hectares of oil palm plantations in Indonesia, including plasma smallholders; harvesting and extracting fresh fruit bunches into crude palm oil and palm kernel; to processing into a broad range of value-added products such as cooking oil, margarine, shortening, biodiesel and oleochemicals; as well as merchandising palm products globally.
GAR has global market presence with destination refining, ex-tank operations and sales representative offices in many large consuming countries. GAR’s products are sold globally to a diversified customer base by leveraging its extensive distribution network, strong merchandising, branding, and destination marketing. Our shipping and logistics capabilities are bolstered by our ownership of vessels, sea ports, jetties, warehouses and bulking facilities in strategic locations. GAR also has complementary businesses such as soybean-based products in China, sunflower-based products in India, and sugar businesses.
