SOCIAL AND PUBLIC DEVELOPMENT

One of the efforts in community development is the implementation of a contract farming system in seed production. After trial runs are held at our experimental farms, foundation seed is sold to contract farmers, who then grow the seeds to be sold back to the Company. This system assists contract farmers in shifting from traditional agriculture to the production of diversified, higher value-added products.

 

We assist the farmers in terms of supplying technical know-how and regular supervision throughout the production process. Benefits for the farmers include enhanced profits and the assurance that their corn will be purchased at harvest.

 

The continued impact of the “earning and learning” concept of the contract farming scheme is also beneficial for the wider rural economy by increasing job opportunities, which, in turn, helps drive down poverty rates.

 

Furthermore, in the operational location neighborhood of each unit, the Company conducts various public activities such as dengue mosquito thermal fogging, mass circumcision, blood donation, renovation of places of worship, streets and schools and free medication.
