Should we ban Palm Oil?

1. Palm is an incredibly efficient Crop. hectare of land can produce about 3.5 Tonnes of palm oil whereas coconut oil or Sunflower oil produces only approximately half a tonne !! We will require 4 – 10 times of land to produce oil by its alternate source to suffice needs of humans. Switching to alternative source will only shift the problem and in fact increase deforestation
2. Palm oil production is a source of revenue for poor people: Over 5 million smallholder farmers who depend on producing palm oil for their livelihood. Banning Palm oil will mean millions of people without work.

3. Palm oil is affordable:  The population of this planet will be close to 10 billion by 2050. We need efficient crops to suffice those needs. We need an oil which is affordable for the rich and the  poor. Not everyone can afford olive/ almond oil.  

Banning palm oil is not an option, the only way forward is producing sustainably

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Be mindful. Be attentive. Be purpose-driven.

WHAT WE DO
Green Earth Agro is a sustainable palm oil production company that advances local employment and rural empowerment in Ghana by sustainably producing palm oil through a farmers cooperative.
HOW WE DO
By using raw materials from the local population, Green Earth Agro is able to ensure sustainable development in two ways: firstly, securing organic certification for palm oil production, and secondly, setting up business opportunities and providing infrastructure locally.

INNOVATIVENESS

objective is to be able to trace and track products from origin to consumption, thus offering a significant value-adding component of Green Earth Agro’s production model.
Greenearth Agro is developing a technology to trace and track Palm Oil from origin to consumption with help of Blockchain.
Developing a blockchain technology based certification for palm oil, accessible to all producer including the smallest and most marginalized. Current certification processes are prohibitively expensive and therefore only accessible to larger firms. The project aims to remove this barrier.
