Fresh palm juice is tapped by the farmers from their own Arenga sugar palm trees. The palm juice was collected by their cooperatives and processed into this traditional sugar using residual steam from a geothermal project. Moreover the sugar was produced without any use of chemicals in a modern, zero waste factory, whose profit is shared only by the farmers themselves and whose director is democratically elected and appointed by the farmers.
By processing the sugar jointly with the Masarang Palm Sugar Factory, the farmers can produce large quantities of a better quality organic product of guaranteed standard and no longer need to cut trees as fuel wood to cook the sugar themselves. Thus your buying of this product helps a democratic and transparent society, while improving the welfare of the local farmers and saving their natural environment.
