BASF partner with Henkel and Solidaridad to support 5,500 smallholders in Indonesia


BASF and Henkel have partnered with the development organisation Solidaridad to support a project in Indonesia and advocate for smallholder and local initiatives.

When renewable raw materials such as palm oil and palm kernel oil are used, the main focus is on economic, environmental and social impacts along the entire supply chain – from field to shelf. Small farms produce around 40 percent of the world’s palm and palm kernel oil. An important question for the oil producing countries is how to increase the yields from the land already under cultivation. 

This is why Henkel and BASF are collaborating with the development organisation Solidaridad to support a project in Indonesia and advocate for smallholders and local initiatives.

Sustainable farming methods, efficient production and high occupational health and safety standards are some of the most important conditions for certified palm oil production. Smallholders can learn how to fulfill these requirements locally in dedicated training programmes. Since 2015, Henkel has been supporting the five-year-project in the Indonesian province of West Kalimantan.
