OUR CORE VALUES
The Okomu Oil Palm Company was established in 1976 as a Federal Government pilot project aimed at rehabilitating palm oil production in Nigeria. At inception, the pilot project covered a surveyed area of 15 580 hectares out of which 12 500 hectares could be planted with oil palm. It was incorporated on December 3, 1979 as a limited liability company.
As part of efforts to shore up its revenue base, the company acquired and installed a 1.5T /h Fresh Fruit Bunches (FFB) mill in 1985 to begin to process its FFB. Prior to the installation of the mill, the company derived its revenue from the sale of FFB.
By December 31, 1989, 5 055 hectares of the estate had been planted. The company also began infrastructural developments on the estate at that period. The facilities included office blocks, workshops/stores, staff quarters, a petrol station, a powerhouse and a primary school for children of the company’s staff members.Learn More
