At the heart of PIL lies the Bulk Palm Oil operations. This operation can be divided into three major areas namely sourcing, refining, trading Logistics (separately covered under Shipping and Logistics) PIL BPO operation enjoys a key differentiation among the large global destination players in its ability to procure and deliver market specific cargos according to the demands of each market.


The sourcing operation can be divided in two parts involving sourcing of CPO for refineries and and for trading and sourcing of Palm oil derivatives. All three associated refineries operate in close coordination with the central trading team in the sourcing operations. Each of the three refineries operate on their own in ensuring procurement and supply of CPO for their operations. PIL does its own sourcing of CPO and refined products either from its own refineries and/or from reputable 3rd parties to satisfy the demand. All buying complies with the stringent PORAM guidelines and sepcifications


PIL enjoys the unique advantage of having own associated refineries who refine the CPO according to the specific needs of PIL’s clients and markets. These refineries not only employ state-of-the-art green technologies but also ancillary facilities like modern storage tanks, jetties, pipelines etc. In a continuous procurement and shipment mode, systematic hedging of cargo is at the heart of the sourcing and procurement operations. Continuous tracking of edible oils prices across the globe as also the demand forecast in each market allows PIL to hedge the risk in the procurement of CPO and refined products. The well experienced trading team monitors the prices and trends in the market through live data terminals and continuously adjust the hedging position. All these activities one governed by robust risk management policies which includes active independent monitoring of positions.
