In 2022, the Division will continue with its focus on cost control improvements, pursuing innovations that elevate plantation productivity, and prioritising capital investments on growth areas. We aim to broaden our mechanisation strategy, conduct further research on available and feasible mechanisation tools, and implement solutions that are proven to be effective. We will also continue to drive greater efficiency through digitalisation and streamlining of work processes.
The replanting programmes planned for the Riau and North Sumatra estates will continue, with crop management activities focused on raising FFB yields. For the sugar cane plantations in South Sumatra, our goal is to leverage higher-yielding seed cane varieties as well as improved fertiliser and agronomic management techniques.Edible Oils & Fats Division
With the growing demand for consumer EOF products, driven by the increasing middle class in Indonesia, we will continue to increase our production capacity to capture new opportunities and strengthen market share. We will also leverage our competitive pricing strategy to entrench Bimoli's market leadership, strengthen Delima as our second brand and cultivate the Amanda brand to drive volume growth.
These efforts will be supplemented with a higher frequency of marketing campaigns, direct sales in the modern trade and promotions in the general trade. We will continue to rejuvenate the formats and packaging designs of our cooking oils to cater to evolving consumer needs. The current distribution system will be complemented by various digital and e-commerce platforms to increase market reach and penetration.
We will focus on developing new products at different price points, improving customer service, enhancing product labelling and packaging, and increasing efficiency through process automation. The global supply chain and distribution networks will be expanded to extend our market reach both domestically and internationally.
