Core Business

EDAMAME

In 2012, following ANJ’s decision to streamline its core activities to focus on agribusiness (oil palm, food (sago), and renewable energy), the management decided to gradually exit the tobacco business and concentrate on higher-value agricultural products.

ANJ has operated in the vegetable sector since 2015, when our subsidiary, PT Gading Mas Indonesia Teguh (GMIT), began cultivating edamame, a high-protein, antioxidant-rich legume belonging to the soybean family.

PT Gading Mas Indonesia Teguh (GMIT) works together and mentors individual farmers during the planting and harvesting of the edamame to manage the product quality. Since 2015, GMIT has been purchasing edamame from individual farmers and sells the products to the domestic market.

In producing high-quality products, GMIT implements international standard processes ensured by certification and regular audits to meet domestic and export requirements. GMIT has obtained Class A Halal certificate from the Indonesian Council of Ulama (Majelis Ulama Indonesia/MUI), also safe and halal certificate from the National Agency of Drug and Food Control (Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan/BPOM). In addition, GMIT has also obtained ISO 22000: 2018, British Retail Certification(BRC), U.S-FDA, Kosher, and Prima Certification.

Currently, ANJ has invested in a frozen line factory and entered into a strategic partnership with AJI HK Limited (Asia Foods group) to facilitate GMIT's market expansion into Asia Pacific region. Under our agreement, Asia Foods provides technical assistance for the development of the frozen line facility, as well as access to the export market. In collaboration with Asia Foods Group, ANJ has begun exporting frozen edamame as shown by the shipment of edamame to the Japanese market at the early of second quarter 2021.

GMIT also produces frozen edamame (under the brand ‘Edashi’) and frozen peeled edamame for domestic market.
