Economic empowerment of community people
Our commitment to the economic empowerment of the community people is most evidenced in our oil palm Smallholder/Outgrower Schemes which enables the people to participate in our line of business – cultivating oil palm and selling their palm fruits to BOPP as their technical partner and guaranteed off-taker. The farmers benefit from the best management practices that ensures good yields and sustainable incomes. The recent introduction of the Alternative/Additional Livelihood Scheme which sets up community people into beekeeping, poultry farming, piggery, baking etc is simply iconic.
