Olam International Uganda
Olam has been in Uganda since 1997 and today operates across 6 key products.
We procure and process cotton, cocoa, sesame and coffee in the country for export worldwide, and import and distribute sugar and edible oils.
Our business is headquartered in Kampala with a strong regional presence in Hoima, Kibuuku, Bundibugyo, Lira, Arua, Kitgum, Pakwach and Mayuge. We have more than 70 permanent employees, and work with nearly 900 seasonal staff across our operations, which range from origination and processing, to logistics and distribution.
Our coffee, cocoa and sesame are processed in Kampala at our well-equipped laboratory to ensure that our products consistently meet the highest standards of quality control, while maintaining excellent flavour and aroma. We are also proud to own and operate Uganda’s oldest cotton gin, which spins medium-to-fine counts to meet the high specifications of our customers worldwide.
