We offer a comprehensive range of conventional, organic and fair trade cold pressed vegetable seed oils and have a dedicated partner which presses a wide variety of seeds to produce vegetable oils in their Kenyan facility at Athi River.
Recent investment to increase the capacity in Kenya means that Earthoil can offer large quantities for shipment directly to customers around the world. Generally, produced oils are shipped and stored in Europe or sent for refining.
