At present, the company has 17,829.9ha of plantation land in Pahang, a palm oil mill with a processing capacity of 30 tonnes per hour of fresh fruit bunches (FFB) and a township development on a 607ha parcel near Kuantan via KotaSAS Sdn Bhd.
Tanah Makmur is currently working with the LKPP to secure the land from the Pahang State Government for an estimated cost of RM10mil,” says Tengku Zubir.
