Ali Wibisono is IPNLF’s first Indonesian trustee, bringing with him an extensive knowledge of the tuna canning industry of Indonesia to our Board of Trustees. Ali established a canned tuna factory for PT Deho Canning Co. at Bitung, on the North Sulawesi Island in May 1982. Ten years later, he established a second canned tuna factory, for PT Citra Raja Ampat (CRA) Canning, at Sorong, West Papua. PT Deho is the parent company for PT CRA. He remains CEO of both factories.
PT CRA has its own fleet of pole-and-line vessels, ensuring a secure supply chain for their tuna. Its canned products are exported to Singapore, Malaysia and Europe.
