Norpalm Ghana Ltd. (NGL) was established in Accra, Ghana on 29 October 1998 as a vehicle to acquire the assets of the former state owned enterprise National Oil Palms Ltd. under privatisation. After a lengthy acquisition process, NGL took over all operational responsibilities from September 2000. Originally owned 20% by a local investor and 80% by Norpalm AS, Norway, the current ownership is a Joint Venture between Norpalm AS (57.2%) African Tiger Holding Ltd (42,8%).


NGL’s mission statement has as one of its objectives to become a leading palm oil producer in Ghana. After a slow start, NGL is today among the four leading industrial palm oil milling companies in the country, manufactoring more than 20,000 MT of Crude Palm Oil and 1.758 MT Palm Kern Oil per year. NGL’s nucleus estates of 4,500 Ha. have been turned around and developed into a well-managed plantation concentrating on high yielding, draught resistant planting materials


At the same time, NGL’s mill has undergone a full refurbishment – incl. various, new investments – to fully cope with the steady increase in both estate and outside FFB volumes.


NGL’s workforce (on average 2022) – was 258. In addition, approx. 1250 contract workers are engaged at the plantation as and when needed, predominantly during periods of harvesting, pruning and weeding. The company is among the leading contributors to the economy in the Western region. NGL is managed by a team of Ghanaian professionals working closely together with the Board of Directors.


NGL is a RSPO certified company.
