PT Poly Agromandiri - Indonesia

For Mr. Krisman Pasaribu of PT Poly Agromandiri, environmental safety is critical to a successful business.

PT Poly, located in Palembang, South Suma, Indonesia, takes a variety of measures to ensure employees and community safety. The company takes an active role in encouraging customers to purchase products from formal distributors and giving them the information they need to identify low quality or illegal products. MSDS sheets are made available for every product received and stored at the facility, and the business has effective procedures in place for the handling of crop protection product containers.

The company also stresses community education by frequently conducting farmer, planter and retailer meetings.

"The positive message we carry into the community is that agriculture feeds the world," says Pasaribu. "Human life means nothing without agriculture."
