Employment Generation

NGL offers direct employment for more than 280 permanent and casual workers and 1,250 contract workers, predominantly during the peak harvest. About 70% of the workers are indigenes from local communities within the catchment area of the company. Providing jobs means enhancing the quality and economic life of the people in the community.

Through our commissioned agents, NGL buys FFB from farmers at farm gate, thereby taking the burden of looking for prospective buyers off the shoulders of our farmers.

Provision of Good Source of Drinking Water to the 4 Communities
Our business depends on the health of the community, so in 2004 Norpalm in collaboration with Norwegian Development Agency (NORAD), provided 7 mechanized boreholes to four communities within it’s the catchment area of the company at a cost of $300,000.

Before the training SMFG conducted a baseline survey to ascertain the level prevalence of HIV/AIDS prevalence from four communities. Peer Educators were selected from the 4 communities where the baseline study was conducted and trained on HIV/AIDS and Voluntary Testing and counselling. The essence of this training was to make the residents of the communities healthy and prevent them from contracting the HIV/AIDS disease.

9. Sponsorship of Western Regional Golf Open
To translate our corporate philosophy that our business thrives on the health of the community, NGL has for the past three years (2009 to 2011) sponsored the Western Regional Golf Open to ensure that the business community stays healthy whilst NGL benefits from the business networking with the business associates who participate in the Golf open and also leverage on the opportunity to brand NGL as a good corporate citizen.

10. Blood Donation to save lives
NGL aligns itself to the philosophy that our communities thrive on the sustainability of our company therefore periodically employees of the company donate blood to the Western Regional Hospital (ENRH) to save lives. Employees of the company are gearing up to make similar donation in 2013.
