Latex dripping into the tapping bowl. Olam has a crumb rubber processing facility, third-party sourcing of natural rubber and a joint venture plantation in Gabon.

Technically Specified Rubber Processing

In 2015 we acquired SAIC, a crumb rubber processing facility in Aniassué, Côte d’Ivoire.

The team sources the raw material from rubber plantations owned by approximately 2,000 smallholder farmers and members of cooperatives.

Under the commercial names SAC10 and SAC20, we provide customers with two grades of top quality Technically Specified Rubber that meet stringent criteria. Our products are manufactured from naturally coagulated, or cup lump rubber.

Quick Facts

  • Expanding supply base of 10 cooperatives
  • Providing employment for 149 people
  • ISO 9001 : 2008 certified
  • 1 factory, 4 buying units
  • 21,000 MT processing capacity
Committed to Growing Responsibly

As part of our commitment to grow and to support farmer livelihoods, we are mapping our smallholder rubber suppliers in Côte d'Ivoire using the Olam Farmer Information System (OFIS).

We plot GPS maps of individual smallholdings, showing the number of trees, their age and other agri related information. In addition, social factors are recorded for example the number of workers, children, distance from a school and medical facilities, and availability of drinking water. Not only can we tailor advice to improve yields, we can also help to minimise environmental impact, improve livelihoods and mitigate social risks. OFIS can estimate the future production growth from a region, predict the properties of the harvested latex, and allow us to help farmers to take precautions to prevent diseases.

We offer other support by supplying quality tapping kits for harvesting. We are also helping local women to establish their own business providing nutritious food to our workers. In addition, we are exploring the possibilities of negotiating the lowest premium rates for group health insurance for farmers and a mobile money service for direct payment.
