The palm products produced at KLK are traceable right up to its respective palm oil mills (POMs), refineries and kernel crushing plants (KCPs). The next step of tracing the source of palm products of its third-party suppliers, remains a huge challenge. These suppliers include Smallholders, Small Growers, external POMs, external refineries and other palm products production plants.
KLK has taken steps to understand the practices of its third-party suppliers and to include them in its traceable data. This is a long-term process and KLK will strive to convince its third-party suppliers of the importance of adopting traceability requirements.
As of September 2019, KLK POMs have achieved 99% traceability to plantations. As for refineries and KCPs, we have achieved 100% traceability to POMs.
