Asian Agri received the Best Community Program Award at the 7th Annual Global CSR Summit and Awards 2015.
The award recognises Asian Agri’s continuing commitment to improving the economic conditions of the local communities, comprising smallholders and independent farmers.
Mr Kelvin Tio, Managing Director of Asian Agri, was on hand to receive the award.
“We do not just build a sustainable plantation industry; we also build the local community as a whole. Local communities play a very important role and can not be separated from our activities. Support and involvement of local communities is necessary to our operations. Our activities should also contribute directly and indirectly to the development of the surrounding areas,” Mr Tio said.
