Plantation Downstream

Advance and expand the potential of palm oil

FGV’s Downstream Division is primarily involved in the refining and manufacturing of palm-based food products and oleo chemical operations. Our Palm Downstream division ensures smooth upstream operations by securing a definite intake of Crude Palm Oil (CPO) for downstream activities. These activities involve transforming CPO and Palm Kernel (PK) into high-value offerings like oleo chemicals, biodiesel, oils, fats, and Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG).

We offer a range of products in categories which are amongst the preferred choices for millions of households in Malaysia such as cooking oil, margarine, instant noodles, creamer, coconut milk and rice. We are a market leader in the palm cooking oil segment with a domestic market share of 45.7% and 43.9% domestic market share for the margarine segment through our flagship household brands; SAJI and Seri Pelangi. 

Our operations are strategically located across Malaysia and in the US and we leverage the direct access we have with the Upstream Division to obtain our palm oil supply. Via our subsidiary Delima Oil Products (DOP), we have successfully penetrated the cooking oil market in Myanmar, Philippines, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Afghanistan.

Through our strategic joint venture with Procter & Gamble in Malaysia, we aim to optimise the highly potential oleochemicals business backed with strong research and development initiatives.

Oil & Fats

This segment offers two distinct product categories: bulk and commercialised products. Bulk products encompass Refined Bleached Deodorised (RBD) Palm Oil (RBDPO), RBD Palm Olein, RBD Palm Stearin, RBD Palm Kernel Oil (RBD PKO), Palm Fatty Acid Distillate (PFAD) and Palm Kernel Fatty Acid Distillate (PKFAD). On the other hand, commercialised products comprise cooking oil, margarine, shortening, vegetable ghee, and various Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) products. Our oils and fats sector includes four subsidiaries: Delima Oil Products, FGV Refineries, FGV Kernel Products, and a joint venture company; FGV IFFCO.
