Feronia PHC has three separate plantations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo with two of the plantations located in the province of Equateur and one Orientale. All three plantations are in remote locations, providing much needed jobs, trade and infrastructure to local communities. The plantations are all located adjacent to or nearby the Congo River.
The plantations have been in operation since 1911. The principal palm oil products are crude palm oil (CPO) and palm kernel oil (PKO).
Feronia PHC products are transported by barge to the capital, Kinshasa. Kinshasa-based refineries purchase 100% of PHC’s local production.
Feronia is committed to the rehabilitation and reinstatement of land that was previously in production at these plantations. The brownfield nature of our replanting programme mean we operates with zero deforestation and have no reliance on deforestation or people displacement for growth.
We actively avoid the use of green-field land to minimize the environmental impact of our operations.
Feronia PHC is one of Central Africa’s largest private sector employers, with approximately 4,000 employees. We own the plantings, buildings, roads, machinery, schools and medical centres on our plantations, and support a community in excess of 45,000 people.
