AK Oils and Fats-Agriculture/Commercial Farming
Our agriculture operations are mainly based around the Bunyoro sub-region in western Uganda and the Lango sub-region in northern Uganda, with emphasis on production of oil seed crops, mainly sunflower and soya. We run a commercial farm at Kiryandongo and a operate production facility in Lira.
A partnership with over 72,000 rural smallholder farmers in the Lango sub-region was developed, facilitating them to grow oil seed crops through provision of affordable planting seeds, farm inputs and technical know-how, resulting in a 400% increase in oil seed production in the region. Lira, the processing home for our agricultural produce has a complex that comprises modern grain storage facilities, oil seed crushing and maize flour milling.
