Seedlings being inserted into soils in a nursery, Olam.


    Olam began operations in Senegal with the incorporation of subsidiary Société Senegalaise de Marchandises Alimentaires (SOSEMA) in 2008. 

    Since then, our business has grown into a leading importer and distributor, and continues to be a responsible corporate citizen and local partner.

    Our Grains business has invested significantly in wheat milling, with our facility producing biscuit and baguette flour. We engage with bakers across the country to better understand their needs.

    Milk Powders and Dairy Products

    Through our group company ofi, we offer a range of milk powders. For more information, visit our group site.

    Smart Energy

    Technical design and a focus on efficiency and environment has meant that our Senegal wheat plant runs with around 25% lower power consumption than some of our other mills in Africa. Our initiatives to enable this include using renewables for lighting, section wise power monitoring, use of variable speed drives and single drives for multiple applications.

    We continue to identify new ways of improving operational efficiency and mitigating our impact on the environment.
