Olam Palm Gabon

    Olam Palm Gabon is a 60:40 joint venture with the Republic of Gabon. 

    This joint venture is part of our plan to support the development of the agricultural economy – to broad-base the Gabon economy, reduce food imports, create employment opportunities and tackle poverty. 

    As a sustainable and responsible business, Olam Palm Gabon's approach is helping us to addresses these inter-connected challenges. 

    Sustainable Palm Oil

    We’re committed to sustainable palm oil production. We’re the largest Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certified producer in Africa with an overall concession area of 202,000 ha, with 50% (99,000 ha) of High Conservation Value (HCV) forest, wetlands and savannah permanently protected.

    Our plantations are the only ones globally to have been independently assessed as climate positive (net draw-down of atmospheric carbon), and were recognised at the inaugural 2019 RSPO Excellence Awards for a strong commitment to establishing sustainable oil palm plantations, which generate net positive impacts through forest conservation. 

    Palm Processing

    Olam Palm Gabon operates two palm oil mills and one palm kernel crushing plant, sourcing 99.99% fresh fruit bunches from our own plantations as well as one edible oil refinery, where we refine crude palm oil to produce cooking oil sold in consumer packs directly to service the local Gabonese market.

    Protecting Gabon's Biodiversity

    Managing palm plantations in a biodiversity rich country like Gabon requires extensive efforts to support and safeguard the country’s natural heritage. Olam Palm Gabon (OGP) employs a 100-strong team dedicated to enforcing rigorous standards designed to protect the areas of High Conservation Value (HCV) and High Carbon Stock (HCS) that make up 50% of our palm concessions.
