Olam first established a presence in Zambia in 2007, with the incorporation of our cotton business following a similar business model as Zimbabwe, where we soon became the third largest cotton player in the market employing 175 full time staff and more than 2,000 seasonal employees.
In August 2012, through a competitive bidding process we took over Northern Coffee Corporation Ltd (NCCL), a 4400 hectares coffee plantation in Kasama, the Northern Province of Zambia. We plan to plant close to 2,000 hectares under Arabica coffee at this plantation which will make this one of the largest in Africa. Northern Coffee Corporation Limited today is one of our largest coffee plantations on the continent positioned to revive the coffee business in Zambia and put the country back on the map as largest producer and exporter of a single estate crop.
