Growing Responsibly in Gabon

We are committed to helping communities to thrive while maintaining healthy eco-systems and living landscapes. Olam Palm Gabon alone has 5 social contracts with over 30 participating villages around our plantations, investing in infrastructure, education, health and recreation facilities. Through the GRAINE project, which is also joint with the Republic of Gabon, we have been stimulating smallholder co-operatives to grow food crops and oil palm.
