Bunge and Musim Mas collaborate to make palm value chain more sustainable

The partnership aligns with the Agriculture Sector Roadmap to 1.5 degrees convened by the Tropical Forest Alliance, designed to halt commodity-linked deforestation in line with the 1.5 degrees pathway

Bunge and Musim Mas Group announced a collaboration to promote the use of sustainable practices among smallholder farmers in Sambas, West Kalimantan, Indonesia.  

The collaboration, co-funded by Bunge and Musim Mas through 2025, aims to train more than 1,000 independent smallholders in the sustainable production of palm oil. 

The partnership aligns with the Agriculture Sector Roadmap to 1.5 degrees convened by the Tropical Forest Alliance, designed to halt commodity-linked deforestation in line with the 1.5 degrees pathway while enhancing the livelihoods of smallholder farmers and supporting the sector’s transformation toward forest-positive land-use management. 

“Bunge strives to be the preferred sustainable solutions partner for producers and customers,” said Ben Vreeburg, Bunge’s Senior Director of Sustainability.  “We believe that together with our customers, we can build sustainable supply chains by sharing our know-how and experiences to support the smallholder farmers, -promoting the productivity, profitability, and sustainability of their business. By adopting sustainable farming practices, smallholders can increase their yields and reduce their dependence on expanding into the forest areas.”
