TanaLink was created for planters, by planters.

In 2016, Cheong Sung Yan, an oil palm planter with 2,000 hectares in three separate estates, partnered with Michel Gilmour, an ecosystem builder, to create the initial vision for TanaLink: for the palm oil industry to regain the in-field managerial visibility they had when the palm oil sector was introduced to Malaysia over 100 years ago. This visibility was largely lost since 2008, when the industry grew from 8 million hectares to over 20 million hectares in 10 years, resulting in the thinning down of both management strength and available labour.
Thus, TanaLink was born.

The Tanalink Advantage

Ensure a Fair Workplace

With Tanalink, planters are able to monitor each worker throughout their workday, how many plants they have harvested, and which areas they have covered. This allows planters to compensate workers more fairly, incentivize them to harvest hard to reach areas, and reward workers for work well done, ensuring more equitable workplaces and loyal workers.


With TanaLink, each worker on the plantation is device enabled, which means planters can see the progress of harvesting roles accounted for during each phase and can track the crop through the plantation harvesting cycle.

Environmental Accountability

TanaLink gives planters the data they need to run more efficient plantations, reduce amount of resources used, and improve business operations. This results in less impact on the environment. Additionally, by helping planters detect wildlife presence, TanaLink contributes to animal conservation and can support plantations with wildlife management plans.
