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. We use a cooperation model, providing agronomic inputs,
training and field support to local farmers in Jember, East Java to maintain and improve quality and yield. In 2020 we began field trials for okra, another high-value
vegetable.

In 2017, ANJ entered into a joint venture with AJI HK Limited to facilitate GMIT’s market expansion into the Asia Pacific region. In 2021, GMIT completed the replacement of essential machinery and has started export of its frozen edamame to Japan in March 2021.

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