The Salim Group is Indonesia's biggest conglomerate with assets including Indofood Sukses Makmur, the world's largest instant noodle producer, and Bogasari, a large flour-milling operation.[1] The group was founded in October 1972 by Sudono Salim (Liem Sioe Liong 林紹良, 1916–2012) and his junior partner Sutanto Djuhar (Lin Wenjing). The current leader of the group is Anthoni Salim, a son of Sudono.

The Salim Group also owns major oil palm plantations (about 1,000 km²) and logging concessions. Salim Group has been involved in property development and the leisure industry for around 30 years. Its businesses include hotel and resort development, golf courses, and commercial real estate.[2]

In 1999, the group called off talks to sell a stake in Indofood to San Miguel Corporation, the main food and beverage conglomerate in the Philippines, because of control questions.

In 2019, the group cooperated with The Pokémon Company to release an official Indonesian Pokémon Trading Card Game with first booster and trial deck called "Matahari dan Bulan : Hantaman Pertama" (English : Sun and Moon : First Hit).[3]

Projects in West Bengal [ edit ]

The Salim Group is involved in a number of projects in West Bengal, an eastern state of India. It is involved in the construction of Kolkata West International City. Salim and Universal Success are investors in the project, Ciputra is the developer, and Singapore-based Surbana is the project manager.[4]

The proposal of the Salim Group for chemical hub and multi-product SEZ were cleared in principle by the board of approvals of the Union Commerce Ministry, Government of India, in October 2006.[5]
