Manual and automated palm oil processing facilities and production processes

With the development of world economy and progress of science and technology, the method of palm oil production has also changed from manual to more advanced mechanical oil production. Taking palm oil processing in Nigeria as an example, at the beginning, people mostly used manual oil production to extract palm oil. The processing of the palm fruit locally is crude and tedious for the local and middle class dwellers in palm oil producing communities in Nigeria. The drudgery and time spent in extracting palm oil discourages the youth and affect the productivity of palm oil in our rural communities.

Manual palm oil production process is as follows:

Palm fruit bunches —— Manual separation of palm fruit bunches —— Simple water boiled —— Manual mash —— Manual pressing to extract palm oil —— Simple steaming to remove moisture —— Red palm oil

So, many savvy investors are trying to import advanced palm oil processing machines from other countries.
