Fairoils Kenya is the production hub of the Fairoils' Group and was established to process ethically farmed crops within Eastern and Southern Africa. Established in 2014, Fairoils' multi-purpose oil production facility in Athi River can produce large volumes of quality-controlled 100% pure and natural high-grade oils. This is possible through quality extraction equipment including screw-presses, centrifuges, and steam & hydro distillation units. This is supported by an expert team with over 30 years experience in the production of essential and vegetable oils.
Fairoils' facility offers the following advantages:
The ability to produce large volumes of quality-controlled 100% pure and natural ISO-certified, high-grade oils.
Organic and Fair Trade certified by IMO.
The capacity to produce around 80mt of vegetable oils per month and store up to 120mt of oil in stainless steel storage tanks.
Fairoils can blend and supply a single lot comprising a 20mt Iso-tank.
In 2016, Fairoil's facility was awarded the highly-regarded ISO certification, confirming the highest quality standard possible.
Avocado and macadamia oil are two of the key oils produced onsite at Fairoils’s factory - both from crops farmed by small-scale farming communities in the Kenyan Highlands (see Projects page). Fairoils is quickly becoming one of the largest suppliers of macadamia nut oil in the world, producing in excess of 400mt in 2016. In 2017 Fairoils is excited to announce it will be offering organic macadamia and avocado oil from its own certified grower’s group.
Fairoils has also established two other oil distillation sites within Kenya to meet growing essential oil needs. One is located at the foothills of Mt Kenya which will distill biomass from Fairoils’ recently formed out-growers group. Crops at this site include; tea tree, rosemary, oregano, and thyme - all of which will be distilled at Fairoils’ central distillation facility. Fairoils second external distillation facility has been established on the Kenyan coast, close to the Tanzanian border. This facility is situated on Fairoils’ new commercial farm and will be the central processing facility for the Kwale growers’ group, as well as processing the raw material grown on here (see the Farming page for more about Fairoils’ commercial farming).
