Three recent reports have documented labour and environmental violations by Indofood and companies related to Anthoni Salim, who with his family owns 44 percent of First Pacific, which owns 74 percent of Indofood.

Citigroup now joins other financial institutions like the Norwegian Government Pension Fund Global in cutting ties with Indofood. In 2016, the Norwegian Government Pension Fund Global sold its position in Indofood over deforestation related risks.
