  5. 5. 5 Key findings and results • Empowering smallholders is an essential pre-requisite for increased inclusiveness. • Smallholders benefit when they can take on more roles in the supply chain (e.g. co-owning mills). • Companies must consider smallholder producers more as partners and co-investors. • Build trusting relationships with smallholders is crucial, and patience is paramount. • Inclusive palm oil production requires innovative technological and business models.
