Message from Managing Director
We project that, within the next five years, the total area under palm tree coverage will be about 40,000 hectares and a similar size from the out growers. The combine total of 80,000 hectares would provide a spring board for social economic transformation at the household level and will significantly reduce not only Uganda's vegetable oil import bill but also that of the entire region.
We will continue to contribute significant sums to Uganda's exchequer. Today we employ thousands of Ugandans directly and indirectly, contributing to improved livelihoods, this will be further boosted by the gradual and professional evolution of a category of out growers. It is then, that the Soil to Pan Philosophy we have adopted will show its transformative capabilities.
We will continue to be a market leader in the region. Through consistent team work, client care, environmental conservation, state-of-art-technology, effective marketing and a sound community partnership programme. We will be able to create enough processing capacity to handle all the fruits. I expect that oil palm will be very popular.
