The Edible Oils & Fats (EOF) Division produces palm oil products and small quantities of palm-based derivatives in the forms of RBD palm stearin and palm fatty acid distillate for consumer and industrial markets. EOF operates five refineries with a total annual processing capacity of 1.7 million tonnes of CPO.
As an integrated operation, EOF enjoyed a secure internal supply of raw materials. In 2020, CPO were purchased and processed into cooking oils, margarine and shortening, of which 72% were sourced from our plantations.
For the consumer market, cooking oils are retailed under Bimoli, Bimoli Spesial, Delima, Amanda and Happy, and Consumer margarine under Amanda, Palmia and Royal Palmia. For the industrial market, cooking oils are supplied directly to Indofood and other food manufacturers, and margarine and shortening marketed to confectioneries, bakeries and food manufacturers under Amanda, Delima, Malinda, Palmia and Simas.
Sales and distribution of EOF products are supported by Indofood's Distribution Group, which has an extensive network across Indonesia. More than 85% of EOF products are sold domestically and the rest are exported to countries including Asia, Africa, Middle East, and Australia.
Bimoli continues to be Indonesia's leading household cooking oil brand that has been winning industry recognition and topping mindshare every year. In 2020, Bimoli achieved "The Indonesia Living Legend Brand" by SWA Magazine, "Top 50 WOW Brand" by Markplus Inc, and an award by SWA Brand for being one of Indonesia's most valuable brands.
The Group manufactures three categories of palm oil-based liquid cooking oil, namely (i) branded consumer pack; (ii) branded semi-consumer pack; and (iii) unbranded industrial type.
Branded consumer pack cooking oil is targeted at consumers in retail outlets and are sold in packages of up to five litres. Branded semi-consumer pack cooking oil is sold in containers of 15 litres to 18 litres and is generally targeted at merchants which resell the cooking oil to end-users. Unbranded industrial type cooking oil is sold mainly to PT ISM Group and other industrial users for their manufacturing purposes. With the exception of industrial cooking oil, all products are sold under brand names.
The Group's consumer brands for cooking oil include Bimoli, Bimoli Spesial, Delima and Happy.
