  1. Small-scale Community Oil Palm Mill Project in Telupid, Sabah, Malaysia   By: PACOS Trust & Alter Oil Palm Trade S/B 18 November 2011
  2. Mission <ul><li>To promote sustainable/alternative livelihoods among the indigenous peoples of the project area in Telupid, Sabah, Malaysia using oil palm as a secure and viable commodity crop which is a means of ensuring security of native lands to the local communities. </li></ul>
  3. Concept <ul><li>The proposed small-scale community palm oil mill of 5 tph will be owned and managed by Alter Oil Palm Trade Sdn. Bhd. (ATOP), which is the business wing of a well-known grassroots organization in Sabah called PACOS (Partners of Community Organisations). </li></ul><ul><li>The basic concept of the SCOP project is to support current oil palm smallholders in securing sustainable/alternative livelihood with a small-scale community oil palm mill as its central focus. </li></ul><ul><li>This will enable oil palm smallholders from amongst the indigenous communities to produce their own organic oil palm FFB and sell it directly to the community oil palm mill thereby avoiding the middlemen. </li></ul>
  4. Concept <ul><li>This social-oriented project is envisaged to benefit the local communities immensely as it is designed for community-management and not monopoly by any single entity. </li></ul><ul><li>The local communities will be organized into a local cooperative which will be managed by the local communities themselves and the profit generated from the SCOP project will be disbursed to members of the cooperative comprising local community oil palm smallholders. In its essence, the SCOP project is a joint endeavour between the local communities for the sole benefit of the local communities. </li></ul>
  5. Goal <ul><li>To provide the local communities in the project area the opportunity to participate in a sustainable/alternative livelihood venture which is not only geared at increasing their livelihood opportunities and income, but also as a means of empowering the communities involved to venture into long-term sustainable business as a community. </li></ul>
  6. Vision <ul><li>To empower the local communities on their basic right to self-determination of their economic, cultural and spiritual growth and well-being. With such an initiative, it is hoped that local communities will organise themselves as a community, earn a sustainable long-term income, continue to utilise their native land and effectively mitigate the large exodus out of their traditional territories in search of employment opportunities. </li></ul>
  7. Target Consumers <ul><li>There is a readily available market in Japan (chain of consumer cooperatives) who place heavy emphasis on the traceability of consumed products to environmentally and people friendly initiatives. </li></ul><ul><li>These are a specific group of highly civic-minded consumers who will only purchase products which come from sources which respect human rights, i.e. they are interested in supporting small-scale producers and not large cooperation's that are often connected to environmentally unsustainable practices. </li></ul>
