FGV Produces 49 Young Entrepreneurs for the Palm Oil Industry

Forty nine young entrepreneurs graduated from the inaugural FGV Young Entrepreneurs Programme 2018 on 7 November 2018. The programme, which was developed and implemented by FGV Holdings Berhad, was designed to equip the next generation of FELDA settlers with the necessary skill sets required within the plantation industry. FGV has also carved out RM2.5 million worth of contracts from its annual procurement budget to give these young entrepreneurs a head start in the business world.

FGV Chairman and Interim CEO Datuk Wira Azhar Abdul Hamid said, “Through such programme, we hope to develop a new group of entrepreneurs who are skilled and knowledgeable about the plantation industry. With the training they have undergone, these young entrepreneurs can perform some of the tasks that are often outsourced by companies to third parties.”

Other than the skills needed to work within the plantation industry, the young graduates were also taught the basics of business management at the FGV Academy. Additionally, they have also been schooled in the requirements of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and Malaysian Palm Oil Certification Council’s (MPOCC) standards for Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) certification.
