Perkebunan Nusantara X (Persero) is a state-owned plantation company and the largest sugar producer in Indonesia having been established in 1996 and subsequently restructured in 2011 to take ownership of further state sugar mills. Under new branding and a renewed vision, PTPN X is playing an integral role in revitalising Indonesia’s sugar industry and achieving the goal of national self-sufficiency for future food security.
Through extensive investment in production facilities, machinery and human resources; PTPN X has effectively streamlined its processes and boosted sugar production to over 500,000 MET per annum. In total, PTPN X manages a total of 11 sugar mills located across East Java and boasts the highest levels of efficiency in the country. The company also works closely with local sugar farmers and cooperatives to optimise sugar production capacity and quality to build a sustainable future for Indonesia’s sugar industry.
PTPN X takes an entrepreneurial and forward thinking approach to the needs of the Indonesian market and has thus diversified into value added, downstream products including bioethanol and biomass. The company’s broad product and service portfolio therefore concentrates on sugar and its derivative products in addition to tobacco and medical services among others.
In line with Indonesia’s growing domestic sugar consumption, PTPN X is continuing to strengthen and expand its sugar production capacity through its pioneering project in Madura to establish Indonesia’s first fully integrated sugar industry that will serve as a benchmark for the sector as a whole.
