About Us


Year of Incorporation
PT FKS Multi Agro Tbk. was incorporated on 27th June 1992. The deed of incorporation was approved by Indonesia’s Law Minister on 21st October 1992 and published in the state gazette on 15th December 1992.
Commenced Operations
In 1993, the Company commissioned its fish processing line and became a producer of industrial fishery products. It was the first Indonesian company utilizing whole fish for production of fish meal and fish oil in the country. The fish meal plant is based in Muncar (a fishing village) in Banyuwangi, East Java.
Expansion of manufacturing facility
Expansion of Manufacturing Facility in 1997, the Company increased its existing capacity for processing whole fish and also broadened the manufacturing scope by processing poultry feathers to produce hydrolyzed feather meal, a high protein feed ingredient. The following year in the grip of SEA’s financial crisis of 1998, Indonesian rupiah witnessed unprecedented depreciation of its currency. While steep depreciation severely affected imports, it was an opportunity for exporters, as the competitiveness of domestic goods got a sudden boost due to weaker rupiah. The domestic feed output had plunged due to its reliance on import of feed ingredients. Amidst falling domestic demand, export activities boosted Company’s revenue as well as net income during the period.
Broadened the scope of raw material supply
In order to deal with dwindling wild fish stock in the La Nina year of 1999, the Company decided to process tuna waste (head & tail) to deal with volatility in marine catch of small pelagic fish.
Commenced Trading Activity
After two good years of raw fish supply in 1997 & 1998, changing weather pattern from El Nino to La Nina exposed the vulnerability of fish availability. Consequently, this had an adverse impact on Company’s revenue. This prompted the Company to reduce its total dependence on manufacturing of feed ingredients and to try and explore opportunities for importing feed ingredients which were neither produced by the Company nor produced domestically. As soybean meal was the largest feed ingredients imported in the country, the Company began trading ingredients by importing soybean meal
Initial Public Offering
On 18th January 2002, the Company’s shares were listed on Jakarta Stock Exchange (JSX), which had subsequently changed its name to Indonesian Stock Exchange (IDX). The Company offered 80 million shares to public during its IPO. Public offering constituted 16.66% of the total number of shares available for listing.

Achieved Rp 2 trillion revenue mark
