Okomu, second largest plantations of Nigeria, is the country’s biggest crude palm oil (CPO) producer and second producer on the domestic rubber market.

In 1976, the Nigerian government launched a program for the creation of huge industrial palm plantations. Okomu plantation was created in the same year to address the country’s vegetable oil deficit.


At the time of its independence in 1960, Nigeria had an agrarian economy. The discovery and production of crude oil then moved the economy towards industry and generated significant profits. Unfortunately, because of this supply of foreign currency, the Nigerian government did not implement any support policies to further develop its agricultural sector.
