The activities of the Wood Products division include the responsible harvesting of natural forests and plantations, third party sourcing, industrial processing, logistics, trading and marketing. We specialise in responsibly-sourced tropical timber for multiple usage including furniture and construction. We ensure that our products meet the highest quality standards and are shipped in a timely manner in order to satisfy the demands of our diverse customer base in markets across the globe.
We are committed to responsible forest management practices and forest certification. We strive to obtain certification for all our own forest concessions within 5 years from allocation. Over the next few years Olam aims to become one of the leaders in the industry. Besides our forestry and processing activities we have also undertaken programmes to help realise value from standing forests through carbon credits and other initiatives that help protect the forest from illegal logging and encroachment.
