As well as exporting cocoa and cashew grown by more than 140,000 farmers, we also import grains and rice, and have invested significantly in processing and food products for consumers including biscuits and tomato paste.
Our success is thanks to the dedication of our 2,000+ team and in turn we are committed to skills development and career opportunity.
Since receiving our trading license in 1998, we have built an extensive network across the country, buying from around 120,000 farmers and directly supporting around 26,000 farmers under the Olam Livelihood Charter. At our processing facility in Kumasi, we manufacture 3 distinct cocoa liquor recipes at a fully automated plant that complies with the highest international safety and quality standards. We then export these liquors to customers across 5 continents under the UNICAO Ghana brand.
We are the largest exporter of cashew from Ghana, supporting some 25,000 farmers under the Olam Livelihood Charter in the Sampa and Techiman areas. We help them to improve the quality and yields of their crop as well as provide them with the infrastructure and credit to secure and enhance their livelihoods. We are the first company to offer Organic certified cashew from Ghana.
We source wheat grains from all over the world for processing at our state-of-the-art mill in Tema. Under stringent food safety standards, we produce specially designed flours for baking applications ranging from sandwich bread, pastry and confectionery, French baguette and pasta, biscuit and noodles. Brands include First Choice, Royal Gold, Adepa, and Vital and these are distributed within Ghana and for export to Togo, Benin, Niger and Burkina Faso.
To help meet the region’s health needs, our flours are fortified with micro-nutrients. Our in-house bakery provides product development insights and training to bakers across the country.
Under our Packaged Foods Business, subsidiary Nutrifoods Ghana operates the the largest biscuits company in the country, producing household brands such as Milky Magic, Perk, as well as the best-selling biscuit brand in the country: King Cracker.
We produce 2,000 metric tonnes of biscuits monthly and supply them to 50,000 stores in 150 towns across the country through our 166 distributors.
We operate Africa’s second largest tomato paste facility and the only one where the paste can be both processed and canned under the same roof. Like all our products, we ensure that our pastes pass rigorous safety and quality checks, and that our operations run efficiently for a reduced environmental footprint. We offer 2 major brands: Tasty Tom Enriched Tomato Mix and Festin Tomato Mix. More than 100 distributors help us to bring these products to consumers.
We employ over 2000 people in more than 130 locations
