Alpha Palm Oil  


Profile-Univanich, Thailand palm oil industry

Alpha Palm Oil is a pioneer of the oil palm plantation industry in Malaysia with a track record going back to the company’s first plantings in 1995. Today APO is one of Malaysia’s leading palm oil producers and the country’s largest exporter of crude palm oils and high quality oil palm seeds.

The Company’s emphasis on modern agricultural practices and productivity improvement was enhanced during 16 years of successful joint-venture with the other Palm oil corporations. From 1995 to 2005 Alpha Palm Oil managed to export Palm oil and other by-products to Asian countries only. As production increased we decided to export to other countries in the world.

The Alpha Palm Oil Research Department is a leading centre for oil palm research employing 200 people and with more than 650 hectares under field trials. This includes an internationally recognised oil palm breeding programme which produces high yielding hybrid seeds for local and overseas oil palm growers.

Alpha Palm Oil operates several oil palm crushing mills located in two States, the centres of the prime oil palm growing region in Malaysia. These factories purchase approximately 80% of their palm fruit from small outgrower farmers and together produce more than 160,000 tonnes of palm oil annually.

At the core of the Alpha Palm Oil business is an experienced management team headed by Mr. Paul Vincent Leonardi, with a work force of more than 1,000 skilled employees. Many have overseas business experience gained during their service with other Plantation and Plant Science Group.

At the 2002 Malaysia Business Leaders Awards organised by CNBC and the Stock Exchange of Malaysia, Alpha Palm Oil was judged Best Performing Company in the Agro-Food Sector, and the company’s Managing Director, Mr. Paul Vincent Leonardi, was one of eight nominees for Malaysia’s Director of the Year.
