One of our key commitments in our Policy on Sustainable Palm Oil is to ensure our palm oil and refined products can be traced to their origin – initially to the palm oil mill but ultimately to the plantation. Our commercial team works closely with our sustainability team to achieve our Group’s traceability targets through active engagement with suppliers.


We own and operate 2 refineries and 17 palm oil mills. The names of these refineries and mills are listed here. The crude palm oil (CPO) used at our refineries are mainly supplied from our own palm oil mills, with a relatively small portion (8% in 2019) purchased from third party suppliers. All our own mills source fresh fruit bunches (FFB) from our nucleus and plasma plantations. Six of these mills (as at end 2019) source from third party plantations as well.


TRACEABILITY TO MILLS


For CPO to be considered traceable to mill, First Resources requires the parent company name, company name, mill name, geographical coordinates and mill address of the supplying mill. In the case that any part of this information is missing or incomplete, CPO volumes from that particular supplier is treated as "untraceable". This does not mean that we do not know the source, but rather they do not fulfil the criteria for what we consider as traceable.


Since 2017, we have maintained 100% traceability to our supplying palm oil mills. In 2019, we source all our CPO and palm kernel (PK) directly from mills. For the traceability report of the PT Adhitya Serayakorita refinery, please click here, and for PT Ciliandra Perkasa refinery, please click here. All our third-party supplier mills source FFB from their own plantations, with some purchasing FFB from third party suppliers as well.


For the first half of 2020, we continue to maintain 100% traceability to all our supplying mills. For the traceability report of the PT Adhitya Serayakorita refinery, please click here, and for PT Ciliandra Perkasa refinery, please click here.


TRACEABILITY TO PLANTATIONS


Of all the FFB processed in our own mills in 2019, 92% came from our own plantations and plasma schemes, while the remaining 8% was sourced from third-party suppliers. These include independent smallholders, medium-sized outgrowers and neighbouring plantation companies. FFB is also purchased from local traders who collect the FFB from the surrounding area


In 2019, we maintained approximately 98% traceability to plantation of the FFB processed at our own mills. We aim to achieve 100% traceability to the plantation for First Resources-owned mills by 2020.
