The President Director of the Company, Andrianto Oetomo, said that the CPO selling price began to show an upward trend this year after weakening last year given the rising stockpile, both in Indonesia and Malaysia.

“Against last year, average CPO price during the first semester of 2020 has strengthened a lot in spite of a dip in the second quarter of 2020 due to a weak demand as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic globally. However, we are optimistic that the upward trend in CPO price will continue towards the end of year as the normal economic activities resume in several countries post lockdowns imposed in the second quarter of 2020, “Andrianto Oetomo said in the Company’s official statement.

Moreover, the firm commitment of Indonesia government to develop the mandatory biodiesel projects and the success of Pertamina to further upgrade biodiesel mix in diesel fuel to 100% (D100), will certainly create some opportunities to boost the CPO domestic demand, and hence encouraging the increase in CPO price.
