The Ghana Oil Palm Growers, Processing and Marketing Association was first formed in 2018 under the company’s code 1963 (Act 179). The organization was registered to refocus specifically on the needs of smallholder oil palm growers, processors, and marketers in the southern zones of Ghana. The Association recognizes the important role smallholder oil palm producers, processors and marketers play and the many challenges they face working in a fragmented uncoordinated way. The association believes that the potential of these small-scale oil palm players can be harnessed for maximum oil palm outputs if they are given the necessary capacity building and support. The association is, therefore, an umbrella organization comprising of over 15,000 smallholder oil palm producers, processors, and marketers and serves as the mouthpiece for these groups.
