Established in 1994, today Olam Ghana is one of the leading agri-commodity companies in the country. With the enviable distinction of being among the largest private Licensed Buying Companies (LBC) in Ghana’s cocoa sector, we are also the country’s leading cashew exporter and one of its largest importers of rice.
In 2012, a state-of-the-art wheat flour mill was opened in Tema, making Olam one of the country’s leading millers. In addition, Olam operates a tomato paste processing and canning facility, and a biscuit manufacturing facility. The former has one of the largest installed capacities in West Africa and is unique globally because its activities are under one roof. As a result, we are also one of the market leaders in biscuits in Ghana.
Our manufacturing facilities produce a portfolio of international quality, strong and recognised brands. In addition to branded wheat flour, tomato paste, biscuits and confectionary, we also distribute packaged rice. Collectively, we are one of the ‘top’ branded packaged food companies in the region.
Our role in Ghana

The acquisition of ADM Cocoa in 2015 is just another example of how Olam is continuing to invest in Ghana.
