This has enabled the Group to significantly reduce land logistics costs, as well as delivery time, while closely monitoring the shipment of its containers.

In 2014, the Group exercised its call option to acquire an 80% equity interest in PT Jebe Koko, a cocoa bean processing facility. This facility is located in the Maspion Industrial Estate in Gresik, Indonesia, approximately 30 km from the Surabaya port, and focuses on processing raw cocoa beans sourced domestically in Indonesia.
