Active in Indonesia since the beginning of the last century, the Socfin Group is a role model for plantation development in the archipelago.

Socfin SA (La Société Financière des Caoutchoucs) was founded in Indonesia in 1909. In 1911, the first palm trees were planted in Sungai Liput in the Aceh province: Indonesia’s first palm plantation was a fact. On the other hand, the first rubber seedlings were planted in Tanah Besih in 1923.


With over a century of experience in the agricultural sector, Indonesia – the country with more than 13 000 islands – is the world’s largest palm oil producer and second largest rubber producer.

Considering that Indonesia is rich in both renewable (agricultural products) and non-renewable (mining and minerals) resources, the implementation of long-term resource management is crucial.
