ASIA PLANTATION HONG KONG

SUSTAINABILITY

APHK was formed in 2011 and is the Appointed Representative of Asia Plantation Capital (APC) in Hong Kong. Some highlights of what APC have achieved since 2002 are detailed below:

  • APC is one of the world’s most successful, multi-award-winning, agarwood growers.
  • APC is a recognised expert in the Aquilaria tree species, which includes sapling cultivation, growing techniques, inoculation and processing.      
  • With operations in 18 countries including Hong Kong, APC’s plantation ownership opportunities have resulted in over US$9M in sales proceeds paid to owners since 2017.
  • This resinous wood, known as agarwood from the Aquilaria tree, produces the highly valuable, fragrant Oud oil – also popularly known as ‘liquid gold’.
  • Agarwood, prized for over 2,000 years, is distilled to produce Oud oil. It is one of the most coveted ingredients in perfume.
  • Agarwood is also used in incense, medicine, and aromatherapy, and is of vital cultural and religious significance, particularly in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam.
  • From 2003 to 2016, Oud oil prices have increased at a cumulative average annual rate of 14%*

  • APC abides by the protocol and procedures of CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora).
  • APC is involved and invested in the local communities in which it operates, fostering social and economic welfare.
  • In bringing agarwood products to market sustainably and ethically, APC is also helping rescue this magnificent tree from the brink of extinction.

I like that i have invested into agarwood as it is good for both the environment and the pocketbook. I see it as a life savings plan that provides a good return for a quality retirement, unlike others.

Impressive to say the least!!

The APC staff who I had the pleasure to meet were very responsive to any and all questions as well as demonstrating exceptional knowledge in a very professional manner. Listening to their excellent presentations about agarwood and seeing first hand how it develops from seed to sapling to mature tree and then to visit the factory and actually see the harvesting taking place was an experience not soon forgotten.

Not to mention the fragrance outlets and enjoying the opportunity to actually experience the wonderful varieties of fragrances in exceptional locations in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

As well, the visits were well organized and the staff from APC deserve kudos from all of us. Pleasant, not the least bit stressful and I also enjoyed the opportunity to meet others who have invested or are planning to invest in their families futures and contributing to the well being of the planet.

We have been investing in the agarwood business through APC since 2012. We had our first plantation visit in Thailand in 2013 and keep visiting every year to see our trees. It was the fourth time for our family to join the plantation visit last month. we had the opportunity to make new friends who share the same belief and thoughts.

We also see a growth of APC and learn more about agarwood. We are satisfied with the good quality of oud and woodchips we bought from APC thought its retail and wholesales channels. We take this opportunity to say thank you to Hong Kong and Thailand’s teams for their good after sales services and efforts of looking after out trees.

We look forward to visiting out plantations next year!

I personally found Agarwood investment is a very good mid-term investment option and eco-friendly.  My sales agent (Jasmine) has always been very responsive and knowledgeable to all my inquiries (I am a detail-oriented person) since Day one. I would highly recommend Agarwood plantation as an alternative investment option to all my friends or anyone that will be interested.
