NOMADES Swiss solutions for edible oils

The demand for edible oils like cooking fats of peanuts, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, wheat germ, cottonseeds, poppy seeds, sunflowers and of course of olives is expected to rise since oils and fats are basic foodstuffs and play an important role with respect to solving nutritional and health problems. Edible oil processing is emerging as a profitable area for small and medium sized farms, as oil has a high demand and is a necessity for every household, restaurants, bakeries or in the soap industry. Many poor countries have the potential to locally produce edible oils from high quality raw materials but current production is mostly limited to cotton seed unrefined oil, pulp for animal feed and clothes washing soap. As a result, most edible oil has to be imported. The quality of the end-products depends on the quality of the raw material as well as on the technology of refining. To take advantage of these opportunities in the edible oils sector, small and medium sized farmers need technical expertise, processing machinery, filtering systems to purify unrefined oil as well as packaging and marketing solutions, making their products suitable for consumption.
