Uganda palm oil is a bright orange or red-colored fat content of the palm tree. It comes from the oil palm tree that is common in coastal areas. For a land-locked country, Uganda’s supplies emanate from the Lake Victoria islands such as Kalangala. The state is a big source of the product and has attracted two major vegetable oil companies in East Africa to set base here. This product is the world’s number one vegetable oil regarding production volumes. It features in diverse areas from food preparation to soap and biofuels production. The origin of the palm tree is West Africa.
Taking palm oil provides the body with 153 percent of unsaturated fat. There is also a 245 percent proportion of saturated fat.
We source Uganda palm oil raw materials from the environs of Lake Victoria whose biodiversity makes for flourishing palm trees. We only interact with family growers with as little as 0.5 hectares and no more than 1 hectare. The family growers let their palms thrive naturally and protect them against wind forces by growing vegetation around them.
We carefully harvest Uganda palm oil to reduce fruit bruises as much as possible. Our trained workers cut the branches holding bunches of fruits and collect them once they fall. The team gathers all bunches and puts them in carts for transportation to the processing plant.
We process Uganda palm oil right after every bunch arrives in our factory. We pass the bundle through a sterilizing fluid, made of chlorinated water. This washes off any contaminants and makes the palms ready for threshing. We also subject all bunches to heat to make the pulp soft for the squeezing of oil. Heat also makes the shells lose for cracking, enhances the protein content and boosts the nutrients in the oil.
Threshing of Uganda palm involves the separation of fruits off bunches. This leaves individual fruits that are then easy to process. We then take the fruits to the digester for breaking down. The machine removes the outer shell and leaves the pulp exposed for oil extraction. It also further softens the cells that harbor the oil so that they will produce to the maximum.
We then use a cold press to extract Uganda palm oil. Each mesocarp of the fruit has about 50% of oil concerning weight. We pass the pulp through the rotating machine which squeezes the liquid out which oozes into a beaker. Pressing also allows the removal of nuts and fiber from the pulp for use in other purposes. After the recovery of the nut, we dry it and then crack it to remove the kernels before packing the kernel.
The next step in pulp oil production after pressing is that of clarification. At the pressing stage the liquid is usually only crude and semisolid in appearance. This is why it goes through a filter which sieves out the solids and lets the clear oil drip. We collect the oil and let it cure or ‘dry’. Packing then follows.
We pack Uganda palm oil in PET bottles, plastic containers and glass jars. We offer this in diverse measures from 500ml to 1l and above. Each bottle comes with an airtight stopper and is vacuum-filled. We finally stick labels of the name of the product, the net weight, expiry date and the destination.
To reduce viscosity or solidifying of the oil due to oxidation, we go for a high storage temperature for Uganda palm oil. This can reach 50 degrees Celsius, which we maintain throughout the storage period.
We transport the oil under the same temperatures to the airport in Entebbe for same-day delivery of the content to the airport. We use our special vans with a modified interior environment for the purpose. You can expect the oil to reach you on the same dispatch date or a day thereafter depending on your part of the world.
You can therefore expect quite pure Uganda palm oil that grows by the freshwater lakeside. Besides, the trees thrive in a natural equatorial climate with low salinity. Our farmers also obtain Global Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) certificates to guide their cultivation. Therefore, with maximum quantity guarantee, you can now avail a palm tree product from the interior of Africa. Our prices are quite fair and reflect your budget. This is why you need to make an order today!
