Hap Seng Plantations is one of the largest producers of sustainable palm oil in Sabah, East Malaysia. It is focused in the upstream activities in the palm oil industry where it grows oil palms in its estates, harvests and processes fresh fruit bunches (FFB) into crude palm oil (CPO) in its own mills.
As a major player in Sabah, Hap Seng Plantations pride itself in its operational efficiency as it consistently records one of the highest yields for FFB.
Hap Seng Plantations’ total landbank currently stands at around 40,000 hectares of which about 36,000 is planted with oil palm. It has a total of six estates and four oil mills, all located in Sabah - notably in the Lahad Datu, Tawau and the Kota Marudu region.
As a seasoned planter, Hap Seng Plantations has adopted the industry’s best agricultural practices in its estates and is a participant of the RSPO certification programme. Over and above the RSPO certification, it has also set aside areas for biodiversity conservation, including the conservation of Bukit Kibos, maintenance and protection of riparian buffer zones as well as retention of designated high conservation value areas in our plantations.
Moreover, as part of the Integrated Pest Management Programme (IPM), beneficial plants such as Antigonon leptopus, Turnera subulata and Cassia cobanensis are cultivated widely. Beneficial plants enhance the natural predators and parasitoid population for the control of leaf eating pests. The IPM approach reduces the usage of pesticides in the operations.
This is part of our commitment for a sustainable future.
