Small producers in Sabah get a boost as Wild Asia reaches some major milestones. Our RSPO certified farmers in Toniting Village  got a special bonus this Easter when we successfully disbursed the funds raised through the sales of RSPO Green Palm Certificates. We would like to specifically thank Johnson & Johnson for not only the financial support but also for believing in our vision for small producers.
