There is extensive information in the literature about medium- and large-scale palm oil processing, as well as about traditional technologies in Africa, but information on small-scale mills is scarce. This bulletin reviews the processing of palm oil fruits for the extraction of both palm oil and palm kernel oil at the small-scale level, with information on some African manufacturers of appropriate processing equipment. The publication provides basic information to palm oil growers and to private entrepreneurs in Africa interested in investing in small- or medium-scale palm oil factories.
