Kernel Fresh / Transforming Waste into Wealth

JPL manages and operates mini oil palm mills in rural communities. In lieu of the inefficient manual extraction technique, our machines reduce processing time by 90% and increase extraction rates by 50%.

Additionally, we purchase the palm kernels from smallholders, and process them into palm kernel oil to create a range of beauty and clean energy products. By creating a productive use for the palm kernels, we help smallholders further grow their incomes from trading a resource that was treated as waste just a few years ago.

As a result, over 500 smallholders with whom we currently work have seen their incomes increase by 264%.
