Salim Group


Salim Group

The Salim Group is Indonesia's big­gest conglomerate with assets including Indofood Sukses Mamur, the world's largest instant noodle producer, and Bogasari, a larg­e flour-milling operation ["Business Times" & "Asian Wall Street Journal" (June 1998)] . The group was founded by Sudono Salim.

The Salim Group also owns major oil palm plantations (about 1,000 km²) and logging concessions.

In 1999, the group called off talks to sell a stake in Indofood to San Miguel Corp, the main food and beverage conglomerate in the Philippines, because of control questions.

Salim Group has been involved in Property Development and Leisure Industry for around 30 years. The businesses include hotel and resort development, golf courses, real estates, commercial buildings, shopping centers and industrial estates. [cite web
