Dekel plans to develop a second ‘seed to oil’ palm oil project in Cote d’Ivoire at Guitry.  Similar to Ayenouan, it is envisaged the operation at Guitry will include a computerised nursery with a capacity of 1 million plants per year (6,000ha of oil palm  estates equivalent) and a state-of-the-art mill producing CPO from FFB grown by both the Company and local smallholders on brownfield land.

Rights to develop oil palm estates over approximately 24,000ha of brownfield land have been secured at Guitry.  In addition, the Company has commenced operations at a nursery site in Dabou which, due to its close proximity to Guitry, will enable us to build relationships with local farmers and cooperatives and at the same time, test market nursery sales in the area.
