As part of a newly launched programme that offers free education at senior high school level, the Ghanaian Government contracted the country’s association of small-scale palm oil producers to supply palm oil (for cooking oil use) to concerned schools nationwide. Reportedly, farmers are preparing to expand oil palm cultivation to meet the anticipated increase in palm oil demand.
