Allanblackia Seed Oil

Allanblackia Seed Oil Enters Market

Seeds of the allanblackia tree produce high quality oil for application in food and non-food products. Since 2010, Form International established and manages a pilot agroforest farm of allanblackia in Ghana. This is done for Unilever to test and demonstrate the cultivation of Allanblackia at larger scale. Unilever has now launched in Sweden the first organic certified margarine containing allanblackia oil, which is a major milestone for this sustainable oil.
