Asia Plantation Capital: A New Way to Create a Sustainable Philippines

Asia Plantation Capital is Sprouting Soon

Manila, Philippines – The Asia Plantation Capital Group (APC), owner and operator of a diverse range of commercial plantations and agroforestry projects around the world, staged its first business presentation in the Philippines on the 31st of July 2017 in the Sarika Hall of the Dusit Thani Manila.

The event was hosted by Asia Plantation Capital Philippines’ Country Manager, Dallaz Eure, and presented by financial investment advisor, speaker and author, Joel Barretto, with special guests, Asia Plantation Capital Group CEO, Barry Rawlinson and, Asia Plantation Capital’s Regional Training and Development Manager, Gilbert Haygele.

The successful debut event was attended by private business owners and decision makers that included the former Department of Agriculture Secretary, Luis ‘Cito’ Lorenzo, and Willem Lavarias, the scientist who invented Tuks Oil – that which is processed by converting used, edible oil to natural pesticides for organic farming in the Philippines.

Asia Plantation Capital’s entry into the Philippines represents a very significant opportunity for economic revitalisation in the country - from the planting of Aquilaria trees in denuded forests and help in the prevention of flooding, all the way through to providing employment opportunities amongst locals living in and around the plantations. APC’s commitment to sustainability goes beyond the employment of personnel on plantations, however. The company also allows, and indeed encourages its employees to supplement their income by facilitating the planting of vegetables and other crops on the plantations themselves. The company also offers housing, medical care and education for their employees’ children.

Promoting sustainability, renewability and social responsibility, Asia Plantation Capital is exploring the expansion of its operations in the Philippines to further address the increasing global demand for agarwood chips, powder and 100% pure, organic Oud oil – produced from certain species of the Aquilaria tree that are currently under CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) protection.

With the help of its innovative agro technology, the company has sprouted up across the globe in a relatively short space of time. Having operated privately since 2002 and being established officially in 2008, it has sold more than USD200 million of trees to date, with zero bank debt. APC now has offices in 17 countries around the world, including China, the Czech Republic, Indonesia, Kenya, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom, not to mention the SAR of Hong Kong. The company will shortly be setting up its operations in the Philippines.

The Asia Plantation Capital Group has won numerous awards in recent years, such as ‘Best Sustainable Forestry Management Team - Global’ in 2014 and 2015 (awarded by cfi.co), ‘Most Innovative Bond Issuer - Global’ in 2015, also awarded by cfi.com, and the highly coveted ‘Forestry Investment Company of the Year – Asia’ 2015 and 2016, conferred upon them by The European.
