Why Choose Us

State of the art Refinery.

Unique product line up.

With the introduction of our latest and greatest Canola oil. We are proud to state that we are one of the very few oil manufacturers to offer Refined rapeseed oil in our product line up.

24/7 Production.

Our manufacturing plants are capable of running 24/7 to ensure a continuous and endless supply of our cooking oils, fats and laundry soap.

First Commercial B100 Bio-diesel Plant.

We are also pioneering the production of Biodiesel from Used Cooking Oils, among other sustainable sources. We are proud to state that this is the first and only B100 Bio-diesel plant in East-Africa. To help sustain our goal for a cleaner, greener environment.

WHY Bio-diesel?

Bio-degradable and safe for the environment.

Bio-diesel is a "natural fuel". It is bio-degradable and non-toxic. Bio-diesel is said to break down 4 to 5 times faster than mineral diesel, which means it has a minimal environmental impact.


Biodiesel is non-flamable, non-explosive, with a flash point of 150 degrees celcius as compared to 64 degrees celcius for petroleum diesel.

Meets and exceeds emission Standards.

Did you know that the bio-diesel molecule contains more than 10% oxygen. This oxygen allows for better combustion and thereby produces less soot. Biodiesel is naturally almost free of sulphur (maximum 0.001%)

For a healthy engine.

Bio-diesel significantly reduces engine wear due to its superior lubricity. Due to this added lubricity, it can be used as an additive to petroleum diesel. Biodiesel also ignites more rapidly than petroleum diesel, resulting in a higher power output due to its higher cetane rating as compared to petroleum diesel.

Closed carbon cycle

Carbon monoxide emissions from burning bio-diesel are reduced by almost 50% and carbon dioxide by 75% since the carbon present in biodiesel emissions is recycled carbon that was already present in the atmosphere.

Can be used with petroleum diesel.

Bio-diesel has a very similar chemical structure to that of petroleum diesel. This means it can be blended in any ratio with petroleum diesel. The mixture will remain stable and cannot be separated using any mechanical means.
