There are reports that PT MPHS may now be part of the Capitol Group, rather than Medco Agro.
We sent a letter via our subsidiary, Megasurya Mas to inform Medco Agro on our interest to visit their mill as part of our engagement process with our suppliers.
Together with our consultant, we conducted a mill verification on Ciptatani Kumai Sejahtera mill located in Central Kalimantan. We also had a communication of the ownership of PT Medcopapua Hijau Selaras (PT MPHS) with Medco Agro management.
The mill management confirmed that they have sold their Plantation , PT Medcopapua Hijau Selaras in Manokwari, West Papua to another party.
