KLK strives for excellence and is committed to maintaining high standards of business ethics and practices;
offering quality products and services and being a good and responsible corporate citizen.


Traceability is of utmost importance to our business where supply chains run across our Plantation sector and KLK OLEO division. It is to ensure that our end products are sustainably produced, which is an increasingly important consideration for our stakeholders.


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 March 2020, KLK POMs have achieved 100% traceability to plantations. As for refineries and KCPs, we have achieved 100% traceability to POMs.

% of traceability for the period of April to Sept 2021


All sustainable produce must be traceable to its source of origin. Oleochemicals produced from KLK OLEO has a highly traceable palm oil supply chain which supports long-term ecological balance of the environment.

Suppliers Map

To further improve transparency towards traceable palm products, KLK has made available the GPS coordinates of its POMs, KCPs, Refineries and their respective supply bases below:


Defined as traceable to Palm Oil Mills (“POM”) level for both Palm Oil based and Palm Kernel Oil based feedstock, excluding internal transfer within KLK Oleo group of companies.

The percentages disclosed were tabulated based on the weighted average purchases for palm oil related origin processed in participating operating centers.

The source of information shared, non-verified, included but not limited to:
i. Supplier specific traceability disclosure: Suppliers submitted traceability information upon request for certain period*, based on cloud of mills. Traceability percentage is calculated based on mills information provided. Should suppliers provide statements of certain percentage traceable to POM level, this was also used to represent traceability.

ii. Supplier website traceability disclosure*: Information from supplier traceability dashboard.

iii. CIF Rotterdam Traceability (CRT) Template**: Specific for Europe operating centers, CRT templates ex-vessel were used as source of information for traceability calculation.

iv. RSPO certified purchases: Declaration of mills by suppliers in the RSPO PalmTrace.

v. Mill list is updated to reflect latest sourcing whenever information is available.

*Traceability information not necessarily match sourcing period. Only RSPO SG model can provide exact matching of traceability against sourcing period.

** Typically connect to shipments over the past 12 months. Suppliers that not in current supply chain, can therefore still appear on the mill list.
