This report focuses on the growing of crops, market gardening and horticulture as well as the manufacture of edible oils, particularly cooking oil. More than 1 million smallholder households grow crops in Zambia. The country is also home to around 1,500 large-scale commercial farmers. The agricultural and agro-processing sectors are key elements of Zambia’s economy and contribute 13% and 11%, respectively, to GDP. Zambia currently produces more than 500,000 tons of soybean, cotton, sunflower and groundnut, which are used to produce edible oils and other products. In addition, it has a nascent palm oil industry following a recent large investment by ZamPalm, with production set to start at the end of 2014. The country consumes an estimated 90,000 tons of cooking oil annually but produces only about 25,000 tons, mostly from soybeans. Imports comprise the bulk of Zambia’s cooking oil market. There has been a recent surge in imports of cheap edible oils from Asia and Africa, alongside concern over customs fraud. The Zambian government has acceded to calls from agricultural producers and manufacturers to raise the import duty on edible oils in 2015.
