Zimbabwe

Olam’s operations in Zimbabwe began in 2005 when we set up our cotton business. 

Today we are the third-largest cotton player in the country, employing 65 people and 650 seasonal workers across 8 locations, and supporting 26,000 farmers.

Our success is down to our integrated cotton ginning business model, with an emphasis on being “shamwari yemurimi” – which means ‘farmer’s friend’ in Shona, a local language. We provide seeds, fertilisers and persticides on credit to smallholders, and offer advice and support to help them get the best out of their crop. We then buy the cotton from them, which we gin and subsequently export as lint.
