About Us

Who are we?

Bumitama Ltd. manages closed to 190 thousand hectares of oil palm plantation in Indonesia, with almost 30% dedicated to smallholders, and operates a total of 15 mills with a processing capacity of 6.4 million metric tonnes annually. Our plantation profile, with a weighted average age of 13.1 years at the close of 2023, is poised to sustain growth in production volume in the upcoming years.

Company Profile

Founded in 1996 and listed on the Singapore Exchange in 2012, Bumitama Agri Ltd. and its Group have grown to be one of the leading Fresh Fruit Bunches (FFB) growers and producers of Crude Palm Oil (CPO) and Palm Kernel (PK) in Indonesia.

Our motto ‘Excellence through discipline’ guides us throughout our work, while dedicated to our vision, mission, and cultural values. We seek continuous improvement through introducing innovative technologies, such as drones or mobile phone applications into our operations, and by constantly reviewing and benchmarking our performance against the one of the industry leaders. We are always mindful of the wellbeing of the key elements surrounding our operations, whether that be our employees, the local communities, or the unique Indonesian biodiversity and natural resources.

The Group has consistently stayed on the path towards achieving higher yields and extraction rates by investing in research and development, technology, and best practices in cultivation of oil palm. These efforts have made us one of the most efficient producers in the industry today, boasting a CPO yield of 4.7 tonnes per ha in 2023.

Our Vision and Mission


To be a leading CPO producer through continuous improvement, focus on productivity, cost efficiency, sustainability, and growth.


To enhance shareholders' value.
To improve the benefits and quality of life of our employees.
To improve the welfare of the local communities and the environment.

“As a mid-sized palm oil company, we cannot drive major industry change alone. However, we are willing to take the lead where we are strategically positioned to make a positive difference. With our biodiversity projects in Kalimantan, we have been able to leverage our land holdings and our good relations with plantation companies, government bodies and civil society partners to achieve something truly unique.”
