The Edible Oils & Fats (EOF) Division makes and markets IndoAgri's downstream products, which include cooking oils, margarine, shortening and other by-products from the refining and fractionation of CPO. The Division operates five refineries that are strategically located near deep water ports in Indonesia. Following an expansion of the Surabaya refinery in 2018, which added another 300,000 tonnes of capacity, the total annual processing capacity of the refineries has increased to 1.7 million tonnes of CPO.
Our consumer cooking oils are marketed domestically under the leading brands of Bimoli, Bimoli Spesial, Delima and Happy, while our consumer margarine and shortening are packed and sold under the brands Palmia, Royal Palmia and Amanda. Bimoli is a well-established household brand that continues to win accolades every year including the Indonesia Best Brand (Triple Platinum), The Indonesia Living Legend Brands, one of the Indonesia Most Valuable Brand, Halal Top Brand and Indonesia WOW Brand in 2018.
Industrial cooking oils are sold directly to the Indofood Group as well as other food manufacturers. We also supply industrial margarine and shortening to confectioneries, bakeries and food manufacturers under the brands Palmia, Simas, Amanda, Delima, and Malinda.
Sales and distribution of the EOF products are supported by Indofood's Distribution Group, which has an extensive network of local and national channels of more than 600,000 registered outlets in both traditional and modern trades across Indonesia.
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 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.
