SOP Group always place a significant emphasis on the role of Research & Development (R&D) in yield improvement in plantation sector, milling processes and quality of downstream products.

Our R&D team is therefore dedicated to ensure the well-being of our estates. Through reliable analytical results, the team is able to deliver site-specific operational solutions on nutrient management, pests & diseases control, producing quality fruit set, effective water management and soil management. Supply chain analysis, technology development and laboratory analysis enable the improvements in mill and downstream processes as well as product quality.


As such, several conservation areas have been set up to conserve jungle reserves and promote biodiversity, resulting in collaborations with renowned universities and research bodies to develop conservation and biodiversity strategies. We continuously research on climatic impacts caused by greenhouse gas emissions from the estates, as well as the mitigating measures to be taken.
