Our lab is fully equipped with all necessary tools for efficient and quick analysis of our products. This allows us to ensure high end quality of all our products and maintain quality performance results before releasing every batch of product onto the market.
Apart from the equipment itself, we are also fully aware we need to hire the best specialists available to ensure that the quality control process is efficient, complete and reliable. This responsibility is executed by our chief technician and product analyst:
Our lab technician is a Ghanian citizen who graduated from the Takoradi College but continued his educational background and professional experience at the University of Ghana in the department of Zoology as a laboratory technician and manager. He then moved on to the University of Cape Coast where he was responsible for laboratory management and analysis in the department of chemistry to strengthen his technical and scientific knowledge. Afterwards his work experience portfolio included companies like Nestle Ghana, West Africa Mills and Thomas Oil Mills in Nigeria where he gained significant experience in the palm oil industry. His meticulous engagement, experience and scientific knowledge allows us to comply with the high requirements and standards for quality and quality control on the market.
All of our products, prior to being released, undergo detailed tests and a series of analysis. Performed by our Chief Technician, those tests are aimed at making sure that all of our products reaching the market – including Palm Kernel Oil, Palm Kernel Cake and Palm Kernel Shells – are safe to use and meet the highest quality standards available.
