About J-Palm Liberia

J-Palm Liberia works to empower smallholder oil palm processors in rural communities by providing access to modern, more efficient processing technologies. Our machines reduce processing time by 65% and extraction rates by 53% on average.

We manage and operate our mills in partnership with rural communities. Oil palm processors within a certain radius harvest palm fruit from communally-owned trees, and use our machines to process palm oil at no up-front cost. Additionally, we provide an option to purchase palm oil from smallholders at going market rates, providing quick access to cash when needed.

Background of partnership with GSMA

J-Palm Liberia is developing two mobile blockchain apps to deliver transparency and traceability to Liberian wild-harvest palm oil supply chains. Using mobile technology, we can demonstrate that forests where palm trees grow wild are being protected whilst improving incomes and livelihoods for palm harvesters, delivering a sustainable, no-deforestation palm product that makes communities more resilient to climate change. This project is being carried out in partnership with GSMA.
