Oil Trading


The oils we buy are produced by farmers in South Africa, and other countries in the SADC region including Namibia, Lesotho, Swaziland and Malawi. We trade locally and internationally with these essential and vegetable oils (organically certified and conventional). The international trading is based on secured annual take off agreements with multi-national buyers, including Earthoil Plantations Ltd providing market security to the enterprises developed by African Rose for at least several years to come. 

Earthoil Plantations has a policy (clearly illustrated by its website www.earthoil.com) of preferentially purchasing oil from emerging farmers worldwide wherever possible, to support economic empowerment. This policy is whole-heartedly embraced and entrenched in African Rose's own business development policy. African Rose believes the future success of the SA essential oil industry will depend on how well emerging farmers in SA are integrated into main stream essential oil activities and aligned with international markets. As a Company we are convinced emerging essential oil farmers in South Africa can play a significant role in the international essential oil markets in the near future if they receive the appropriate integrated support services. Our business models are therefore designed to facilitate the development of SA emerging essential oil farmers to a meaningful status in the eyes of the essential oil markets worldwide. 

Our policies of preferentially buying from emerging essential oil farmers are supported not only by our conviction that this is our corporate social responsibility in the context of SA in the 21st century but also by current business and marketing demands. More and more international fragrance, flavour and cosmetic company procurement policies are demanding raw material from ethically structured, economic empowering, production platforms, along with internationally accredited "fair trade" policies.
