PT Indofood Sukses Makmur Tbk

Company Background

Indofood Sukses Makmur is the core unit of Salim Group, one of Southeast Asia's biggest family-run businesses. Anthoni Salim, the son of the ethnic Chinese conglomerate's founder Sudono, has been its president since 2004. Salim Group's Hong Kong investment arm First Pacific, which is also led by Anthoni, owns 50% of Indofood's shares.

Indofood is one of the few companies that Salim Group did not let go during the Asian financial crisis, which led to former Indonesian President Suharto's overthrow in 1998. The company recovered through public funded bailouts and Salim's investment vehicles, and has been diversifying in recent years. In 2010, Indofood floated shares of its consumer products division, which includes its core instant noodle business.

In 2013, Indofood expanded its overseas presence. Acquisitions included sugar producers in Brazil and the Philippines as well as Singapore-listed vegetable processor China Minzhong Food. Activity has slowed in 2014, but a return to focus on the domestic markets may be in the cards. Salim claims that global expansion will help bring technology and know-how to Indonesia.
