Aceh Agriculture and Plantations Office Plantation Cultivation and Marketing Affairs Head Azanuddin Kurnia said Aceh offers huge investment opportunities to major palm oil plantation companies with its vast arable lands. He told “Bisnis” on Wednesday (February 13) that the province has the potential to produce a large amount of palm oil. He hoped Aceh could establish crude palm oil derivatives plants to increase farmers’ income and contribute to regional and national revenues.
Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) Indonesia Director Tiur Rumondang said only two companies have become RSPO members in Aceh. In addition, the province also owns four RSPO-certified mills, she said.
