As the world’s largest commercially owned rubber plantation and as Cameroon’s largest private employer, we balance economic development with ecological preservation by employing low intensity planting.
Following the establishment of a legal boundary, 25,000 hectares of land has been designated as a Community Forest, offering indigenous people the value and benefits from the land. Our operations are governed by our Group’s Sustainable Natural Rubber Supply Chain Policy (SNRSCP) and overseen by the Cameroon Sustainability Council.
The Cameroon Outgrower Programme will drive sustainable employment and provide food security for over 10,000 families. Converting 27,000 hectares of degraded and fallow land into multi-crop farms around a core of rubber, the programme will produce up to 39,000 tonnes of traceable and sustainable smallholder rubber annually.
Our plantation feeds the Hevecam factory, custom to producing high quality concentrated latex, dry latex and TSR grades. Operating under the LATEXPRO and HEVEAPRO standards, the factory is accountable to a stringent 3rd party certified audit covering Quality Standards, EHS, Sustainability and Supply Chain Security.
The plantation consists of four estates: Lebir, Ulu Nenggiri, Ulu Temiang, and Laloh. 2019 was the first year of production with the collection system initially focused on dry rubber. Strategy includes a tactful shift to a latex collection system which could feed a potential future latex production factory.
