WHAT WE ARE PROUD OF

OUR SEEDS

Through our collaboration with MPOB, we have produced our Clonal Palm Series 3 (CPS3), which is a high quality oil palm clone capable of increasing productivity through higher Fresh Fruit Brunches (FFB) yields and OER, to be offered for commercial cultivation.

WHAT WE ARE PROUD OF

PROGRESSIVE VALUE CREATOR

The value of JPG lies in our agility and scalability. As a medium-sized company, we are not too big to be uneccessarily bogged down by bureacracy, and not too small to miss out on having impact and scale.

WHAT WE ARE PROUD OF

QUALITY CONTROL

FUTUREPROOFING THE BUSINESS

We know that it takes a collaborative effort in order to sustainably farm the future and support a rapidly growing global population without increasing agricultural land use and carbon footprint. Recognising that issues in the palm oil industry are diverse and complex, we believe in partnerships to identify, mitigate and address the root causes on the ground across the value chain. We are actively seeking to collaborate strategically with the world’s greatest innovation, technology, conservation and infratructure partners to produce new approaches and solutions by leveraging on each other’s unique strengths and expertise.
