About Olam Ghana Ltd
Olam Ghana is a fully owned subsidiary of Olam International Limited, which was established in 1989 trading cashew from Nigeria. Today, Olam Ghana’s operations have expanded into a leading agri-commodity and packaged foods Company.
Established in 1994, the company’s principle business activities in Ghana include Cocoa, Cashew, Packaged Foods and Wheat. Olam’s success in Ghana has been based on delivering value to farmers, customers and consumers through best in class operational capabilities and a long-term commitment to develop Ghana’s agricultural supply chains.
Under the Packaged Foods Business, subsidiary Nutrifoods Ghana operates the largest biscuits company in the country, producing household brands such as Milky Magic, Perk, as well as the best-selling biscuit brand in the country: King Cracker. The only FSSC certified biscuits facility in West Africa, churns out a monthly production capacity of 2,000 metric tonnes and supplies to 50,000 stores in 150 towns across the country through our 166 distributors.
Olam Ghana operates Africa’s second largest tomato paste facility and the only one where the paste can be both processed and canned under the same roof. Main brands: Tasty Tom Enriched Tomato Mix and Festin Tomato Mix. Like all our products, high standards are set in product quality, engaging with consumers through surveys, impactful media, consumer promotions and on the ground community activations. In collaboration with the Ghana Education, Tasty Tom Enriched Tomato Mix is currently the most preferred brand used in most government assisted Senior High Schools.
Olam Ghana imports rice and distributes in Ghana and more widely in West Africa under the market leading brands Royal Feast, Royal Aroma, and Mama Africa. Over 130,000 MT rice distributed through 120 key distributors across the country. Royal Feast and Royal Aroma are household names with all year presence on TV, radio, top-rated sponsored programs and on-ground activations.
Wheat grains are sourced from all over the world for processing at Olam’s state-of-the-art mill in Tema. Under stringent food safety standards, specially designed flours are produced for baking applications ranging from sandwich bread, pastry and confectionery, French baguette and pasta, biscuit and noodles. Brands include First Choice, Royal Gold, Adepa, and Vital and these are distributed within Ghana and for export to Togo, Benin, Niger and Burkina Faso. To help meet the region’s health needs, flours are fortified with micro-nutrients. An in-house bakery provides product development insights and training to bakers across the country.
Since receiving its trading license in 1998, the company has built an extensive network across the country, buying from around 120,000 farmers and directly supporting around 26,000 farmers under the Olam Livelihood Charter. At the processing facility in Kumasi, Olam Cocoa manufactures 3 distinct cocoa liquor recipes at a fully automated plant that complies with the highest international safety and quality standards. These liquors are then exported to customers across 5 continents under the UNICAO Ghana brand.
Olam supports some 25,000 farmers under the Olam Livelihood Charter in the Sampa and Techiman areas. With a procurement reach of over 200 agents, farmers are assisted to improve the quality and yields of their crop and provided with infrastructure and credit to secure and enhance their livelihoods.
