Government Policy and the Nigerian palm oil processing industry development opportunities
Nigeria ranks third in the world in terms of land area planted with oil palm, but it is only the fifth largest palm oil producer due to low yields. Yield is much lower in Africa than in Southeast Asia for various reasons, including climate and infrastructural limitations and a predominantly smallholder approach to production. In order to promote the development of the Nigerian palm oil processing industry, the Nigerian government has formulated a series of policies to develop the palm oil industry.
1) Nigeria plans to invest 180 billion naira ($500 million) to increase its palm oil production from around 600,000 tons a year to 5 million tons a year by 2027.
(The policy, which would double oil palm acreage from 3 million to 6 million hectares, aims to meet all of the country’s domestic palm oil demand by 2027. Last year Nigeria spent about $500 million importing 600,000 tons of palm oil.)
2)Nigerian Government encouraged the construction of a palm oil mills in every continent of Nigeria.
3)Nigerian Government encouraged the banks to lend to small farmers. Meanwhile, the Nigerian Government said it will encourage investment by offering low interest loans to farmers for oil palm cultivation and erecting barriers on crude palm oil imports.
