Purchasing Rubber Direct From Smallholders

SRIB has purchased directly from the rubber smallrs in Sabah since 1972. Purchasing activities are handled by Purchasing unit.

There are (17) seventeen District Purchasing Units throughout Sabah.

The Purchasing Units purchase raw rubber from each village with the frequency of once a week, or at least twice a month. Smallholders do not have to sell their rubber produce to the private sector or rubber dealers in town.

The Purchasing Units buy raw rubber in cash from the smallholders at farm gate on the day of purchase. However, if the purchases are on credit the smallholders are paid within seven (7) days from date of purchase.
