What is United Malacca's Secret to Good Yields?
Peter Benjamin, CEO, United Malacca Berhad
Established in 1910, plantation company United Malacca remains a small player in the industry and yet, its yields have surpassed many of the big players.
We ask CEO Peter Benjamin what's their secret to this.
He also shares his outlook on the industry and CPO prices as well as his plans for the company moving forward.
Peter also spoke about diversifying into cash crops to mitigate risk from being an upstream business and the group's regional expansion plans.
We also chat about United Malacca going into mechanisation and the rationale behind this strategy as well as the expected investment for it.
United Malacca borrowed and expanded for the first time in FY2016. Do they expect to take on more debt moving forward?
Peter also talks about dividend and yields. Listen in.
