Social Sustainability

Independent smallholders now make-up more than 80% of Thailand’s 750,000 hectares oil palm industry, mostly located in the southern provinces of Krabi and Surat Thani. What had been an impoverished and politically unstable region 40 years ago has achieved new prosperity largely as a result of this successful agricultural development. Univanich has encouraged this development through the annual supply of more than 1.5 million high-yielding seedlings to local farmers and through field-days at the company’s OPRC training centre. The company strategy of ‘sharing the technology and spreading the prosperity’ has paid off for the entire community. As thousands of small farmers have expanded and prospered, so too has the Univanich business.

 

Following the success of this integrated development in Thailand, Univanich has recently moved to replicate a similar business model in Mindanao, southern Philippines. After supplying seeds to the region over several years, in 2014, a joint venture Univanich – Carmen Palm Oil Corporation commissioned its first Philippine crushing mill to service new oil palm smallholders in North Cotabato Province. Univanich believes that given the right investment incentives and bold investment decisions, the southern Philippines can also achieve peaceful prosperity through the successful development of this remarkable crop.

In addition, we partake in the sponsorship and support of local community projects and provisions, such as:

1. Sponsoring a new ambulance and new Portable Oxygen Generators for Aoluk Hospital

2. Sponsoring the construction of the Community Hall at Plaiphraya School

3. Sponsoring a new Dental Clinic for Plaiphraya Hospital

Over the years, Thailand’s oil palm industry has brought many dramatic improvements to previously impoverished rural communities, and we aim to create new prosperity for many thousands of rural families in the future.
