Biodiversity: Indonesia possesses a wide range of biodiversity, including plant species that can adapt well to local environments, such as sacha inchi.

Market Demand: Sacha inchi oil is increasingly sought after by health-conscious consumers looking for a healthy source of fatty acids.

Economic Potential: Developing sacha inchi cultivation can bring economic benefits to farmers and the agricultural industry in Indonesia.

However, successful development of sacha inchi cultivation in Indonesia requires further research on the plant’s adaptation to the local environment, appropriate farming practices, and efficient infrastructure and technology for sacha inchi oil processing.

Sacha Inchi cultivation started to be introduced and grown in Indonesia around 2017. Several regions in Indonesia have successfully cultivated and developed sacha inchi and produced sacha inchi oil.

Some regions in Indonesia known for their active involvement in sacha inchi cultivation and oil production include:

North Sumatra Province: One of the regions in North Sumatra that has actively grown sacha inchi is Toba Samosir Regency. In this area, several groups of farmers have adopted sacha inchi cultivation and produced oil for local and commercial purposes.

West Sumatra Province: Some areas in West Sumatra, such as Agam Regency, have also begun to develop sacha inchi cultivation and utilize it as a potential source of income for farmers.

Java Island: Several areas on Java Island have also developed sacha inchi cultivation and oil production, such as DKI Jakarta, West Java (Bogor, Sukabumi, Bandung, Tasikmalaya, Cianjur, Ciamis, Pangandaran, Cirebon, Subang, Purwakarta, Garut), Banten (Serang and Pandeglang), Central Java (Semarang, Solo, Wonogiri), and East Java (Surabaya, Kediri, Malang, Trenggalek, Jember, Pasuruan, Probolinggo). Despite the considerable number of sacha inchi cultivators and producers in these areas, more research and development are needed to improve the quality and productivity of sacha inchi oil and its derivative products.

Recognizing the business potential of sacha inchi cultivation, particularly its main product, Sacha Inchi Oil, Alizamrud Corporation is also interested in participating in the development of this plant. The company plans to cultivate sacha inchi on a 100-hectare land located in West Java province, with a total investment value of 100 billion Indonesian rupiah.

By investing in sacha inchi cultivation, Alizamrud Corporation aims to tap into the growing demand for healthy and nutritious products, while contributing to the development of the local agricultural sector. With Indonesia’s favorable climate and biodiversity, the company sees significant opportunities for sustainable sacha inchi cultivation and oil production.
