In our assessment visit to a supplier we had the opportunity to meet the artisan method of palm oil production that some small producers still practise in the region. We were very impressed!
The Fresh Fruit Bunches (FFB) are cut to separate the fruits, which are then cooked and taken to the ‘Rodão’ where they are crushed to become a dough. This dough is manually stirred in a separate tank until the oil is completely separate by sedimentation and flotation.
