Investing in livelihoods, skills and food security
From our 10,000 hectare rice farm in Nigeria to our state-of-the-art cocoa and cashew processing facilities in Côte d’ivoire, Olam has been investing in Africa for over 25 years. Today we are present in 24 countries where we buy agricultural products such as cotton, sesame and coffee from 2.5 million smallholders. Our 31 processing sites spread across the continent transform much of the raw material that we buy into value added ingredients for export and local consumption. But that‘s not all – we are also significant wheat millers in Africa providing local bakers with flour and are responsible for many well-known food brands such as Tasty Tom, Royal Aroma rice, Kingkrackers, Mama Gold, Bua pasta and Dona palm oil. 15,000 direct employees and 23,000 seasonal and contract staff help us deliver our goals. They are responsible for our success and continued belief in the potential of Africa.
Olam – born in Africa, believing in Africa.
