J-Palm Liberia manages and operates mini oil palm mills in partnership with rural communities. JPL proposes to use its machines to process palm oil. Its machines reduce processing time by 90% and increase extraction rates by 50%.
J-Palm Liberia uses all layers of the wild oil palm fruit (indigenous to West Africa) to create a range of health and beauty products for the middle-to-low income consumer segment, and in the process increase incomes for smallholder farmers by up to 263%, and create more than 600 much‑needed jobs for Liberian women and youth.
J-Palm Liberia has recruited and trained more than 500 young Liberians to serve as our Field Sales Representatives.
