Oil Palm

Oil Palm // Strategy

to meet Africa’s palm oil needs

Three plantations

Yaligimba and Boteka are both in Equateur province. Lokutu is in Orientale province.

All of our plantations are either adjacent to the Congo River, or in close proximity to it.

Palm oil is one of the world’s most important vegetable oils, used in countless food and non-food products. The historic PHC plantations company was once one of the largest palm oil producers in the world. With the investment of capital, energy and world-class science and expertise, it is our objective to return the company to and ultimately surpass its former prominence.

Given the long lead time required to grow oil palm, it is Feronia's practice to acquire established oil palm plantations that have fallen into disrepair and return them to productivity while investing in onsite processing facilities.

The Feronia management team has a track record of rehabilitating plantations and returning them to profitability. The company commenced its activities in the palm oil sector with the acquisition of Unilever PHC in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2009.

Feronia PHC has been in operation since 1911 and is one of the largest palm oil producers in Africa. Its operations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo consist of three separate plantations and, due to the its replanting programme means there is zero deforestation and no reliance on deforestation for growth. Feronia is committed to sustainable agriculture, environmental protection and providing jobs and economic growth for local communities..
