Vision

Agriculture

Cameroon, located in Central Africa region, has an important potential of agricultural development considering the available arable lands and favourable geo-climate conditions.

10th world palm-oil producer and 3rd African producer after Nigeria (940,000 tons) and Côte d'Ivoire (417,000 tons), Cameroon has produced 235,000 metric tons of palm-oil in 2014, while the national demand exceeds 340,000 tons according to the latest figures released by the ministry of agriculture, Cameroon. As a result, the country's production deficit amounts to 100,000 tons, giving opportunity for palm-oil development.
It is to be noted that Palm-oil production to an industrial scale constitutes a strategic thrust of the development agenda of the Government of Cameroon.
