Can we grow our own Oil Palm?
Yes, we actually want local farmers to grow their own Oil Palm. The more fruit GVL can buy from local producers the more we can process. We see it as mutually beneficial for the community and the company. As value added service to the community we will arrange with local communities a Community Oil Palm program that will operate alongside GVL farms, which will bring long-term benefits to the area.
Will GVL spoil our sacred, heritage sites and graves of our ancestors?
No. GVL will do participatory mapping with the community to agree on areas, which must be avoided and preserved. GVL’s people will work with you to prevent mistakes and to remedy any concerns. We do ask you to be diligent in showing GVL all of the important areas.
