With the growth of equatorial Africa’s palm oil industry, Olam is leveraging our regional experience and partnerships to develop sustainable Oil Palm Plantations in the region. We are building a robust and sustainable upstream business, and are harnessing our food distribution channels and products to build up capabilities in our midstream and downstream value chain, especially for niche markets. We also have a wider edible oils sourcing capability, offering a full portfolio to customers
In our upstream operations we are committed to building a sustainable palm business and have aligned our efforts with the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) Principles and other international best practices. We proactively work with policymakers to improve palm oil sustainability for Africa.
In June 2018, Olam purchased 100% shareholding interest in Ruyat Oil Limited, expanding its midstream operations into the continent’s biggest market. Principal activities are refining crude vegetable oils and marketing of such Refined, Bleached & Deodorised Palm Oil, Palm Olein & Soybean Oil.
