The company wants to go beyond just being a plantationcompany," he added.Sabri also stressed that the group will be spending money for brandingto raise the brand equity of its products, and said that comments bycertain parties that Golden Hope has no direct management of its foreignassets were inaccurate.The rationalisation exercise between Golden Hope and Island &Peninsular involved asset swapping, which saw Golden Hope disposing of 99percent of Golden Hope Properties Sdn Bhd, 60 percent of Golden HopeDevelopment Sdn Bhd and 100 percent of Golden Hope Properties (Johor) SdnBhd to Island & Peninsular.Island & Peninsular in turn, disposed of 99.6 percent of itsplantationarm, Austral Enterprsie Bhd, to Golden Hope.Earlier in his speech, Sabri said that the exercise has increasedGolden Hope's land bank to 188,093 hectares from 132,826 hectares.The total oil palm planted area will surge to 172,000 hectares from120,000 hectares and fresh fruit bunches's production is set to increaseto2.87 million tonnes from two million tonnes now, he said.Sabri said that crude palm oil production is envisaged to reach620,000tonnes. -- BERNAMA
