Olam first began operations in South Africa in 2000.

In 2007, Olam entered the South African FMCG market with the launch of the distribution of our pre-mix coffee brand Café Enrista based out of Johannesburg. Today, Cafe Enrista is the current leader in the pre-mix coffee market space in South Africa.

The Edible Oil Trading Desk based out of our head office in Durban was started in September 2012. We participate in the import as well as domestic market and trade in sugar, crude and refined soya oil, sunflower oil and various grades of palm oil. The trading desk expanded in 2014 into the proteins and oil seeds space adding soybean meal, sunflower seeds and soya beans to our portfolio.

In 2015, our edible oil pipeline in Beira port came on-line giving us unfettered access into the cross-border markets of Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi as well as supporting Olam’s 2 refineries in Mozambique.

Today, we operate in 2 locations, with our head office in Durban and regional office in Johannesburg and we employ 60 permanent staff across our operations.

In managing an integrated supply chain for our customers, we have effectively managed risk and created greater value for them, right from origination and processing, to logistics, marketing, brand building and distribution.
