EoF requested Asian Agri provides comments on a draft of their report and offered their recommendations on dealing with such cases. Asian Agri sent a response to EoF on 2 February 2016 stating:
Asian Agri had conducted an investigation and its findings showed that the supply of illegal FFB mentioned in the report occurred a year ago, between January – April 2015. During our internal verification, which took place before we were made aware of EoF’s findings, we immediately took action against suppliers who violated Asian Agri’s sourcing policy by terminating their supply contracts in June 2015.
