Kalkloha Oil Factory


In 2020 we received a grant from the German Government aid agency towards working with the Kalkloha Farmers’ Co-operative to restore and operate a sunflower oil processing facility which has fallen into disrepair.

Our model is that we will be able to offer young farmers the opportunity to grow two crops of sunflower each year (see our Irrigation Projects), bring their seeds to the oil factory for processing and then be able to take the oil away to sell themselves – in this way they can benefit from the full value chain rather than simply selling the unprocessed crop.
