Landscape of high carbon stock forest in Congo

Wood Products

Through subsidiary Congolaise Industrielle des Bois (CIB), we have delivered high quality and sustainably sourced timber for over 50 years. It comes exclusively from our forest concessions in the Republic of Congo.

Our four modern sawmills have a capacity of 250,000 m3 of input logs. They allow us to treat various species and dimensions of logs and sawn timber.

Not only can we recommend the right species to meet customer needs, we can tailor products to specification. We have a moulding unit and a furniture workshop which produce finished products and high-quality furniture. Our wood has a variety of end uses such as door and window frames, flooring, marine timber and furniture and housing and is sold both within ROC and internationally.

We take care to preserve the unique colours, strength and quality of the timber throughout production, and our logistics team ensures the cargo reaches its destination on time. 

Steam-powered

On our saw mill site, our high capacity industrial kiln dryers are driven by a wood fired cogeneration power plant and use spent steam from the cogeneration unit, making this one of the most ecologically friendly operations in Africa. 

Darshan Raiyani, Senior Vice President and Business Unit Head of Wood Products, Olam.
"Our strong on-the-ground presence enables us to provide a highly informed service for our customers as we can better anticipate short-term movements and long-term trends. We work closely with production units to ensure consistent supply, while maintaining a clear and transparent chain of custody.”

Health and Safety

As with the rest of our business the team in the Republic of Congo is committed to maintaining a 'Safety First' culture. Our goal is 'zero lost time incidents (LTIs)'.

As a result of continuous efforts, we have seen a marked reduction and recorded a LTIFR of 1.2 in 2019, with annual person-hours of 3.43 million. In the last two years, the LTI has reduced to 1/8th

We work towards eliminating as many risks which cause injuries or illnesses as we can.
