Hastesid Farms & Agro Allied
Hastesid is primarily involved in the processing of palm kernel nuts into palm kernel oil, a major requirement for vegetable oil production, soap making and making Palm Kernel cake (PKC), a source of animal feed protein.
Market Opportunity/ Problem
Nigeria consumes 1,000,000 tons of vegetable oil per year. 80% of the edible vegetable oil consumed in Nigeria is made from refined Palm kernel oil. With the ban on importation of vegetable oil in Nigeria, and on the release of forex to importers, there exist a huge opportunity for Palm Kernel oil production locally
