            "Some of our processing plants have already obtained the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) chain-of-custody certification , which requires a stringent process of implementing a documentary tracking system to maintain records of suppliers, purchases, inputs, processing and outputs of chain-of-custody certified products. The FSC certification enables us to build a stronger brand identity and allows us to meet increasing demand for certified processed timber products. "
