Crude Palm Oil (CPO) and Palm Kernel Oil (PKO). The Company’s own plantations provide approximately 20% of the fruit processed by three Univanich factories, with the balance provided by more than 1,000 small and medium sized out-grower farmers.

Crude Palm Oil and Palm Kernel OilThe Univanich production process starts with our oil palm breeding programme and seed production unit. High quality hybrid oil palm seedlings are produced for our own plantings or for sale to our farmer suppliers. After careful selection in the Company’s nurseries, seedlings are ready for planting at around the age of 10 to 12 months.

Crude Palm Oil and Palm Kernel OilUnivanich hybrid oil palm seed is produced by cross pollinating pedigree Dura and Pisifera parent palms which have been collected over 30 years from leading breeding programmes around the world. To ensure high yields in Thailand’s growing conditions the progeny of these parent palms have been extensively tested in field trials to select the best hybrid crosses.
