IMC PLANTATIONS LIMITED is a 4,145-hectare oil palm plantation and mill business based in Nsukwa Delta state. It took over the plantation business in 2017 from its parent company IMC LIMITED.
In 1996, IMC Limited was granted a 25-year lease concession of the Delta state owned oil palm plantation estate and oil extraction mill at Nsukwa Delta State. This estate is a 3500 Hectares prime agricultural land located in the Ethiope river basin. Both the plantation and the Mill were initiated and developed in 1975 by the then Bendel state government, and was managed and operated by the state-owned Oil Palm Company (OPC) until the concession to IMC LIMITED
We also produces 5litres and 20litres retail product for sales directly to hotels, restaurants and caterers. The 20-litre retail palm oil product serves a need not previously catered for in the hospitality industry, as IMC is the only branded and traceable palm oil product for a high-volume customer. In 2020 we started bottling fresh palm oil in 50cl plastic bottles to be sold directly to the final consumers. This is a high quality palm oil sold at pocket friendly prices.
IMC Limited took over the plantation in a gross state of neglect but has enviably turned it around to a well-managed and maintained plantation.
The total arable land area of the plantation is 3500 Hectares, out of which 2,500 Hectares is cultivated. Each hectare contains approximately 139 trees. There are 250,200 adult trees in the plantation with capacity to produce an average of 15, 500 tons per annum of fresh palm Bunches (FFB).
However, with the younger palms coming into adulthood, we would see a constant increase in production output to over 25,000 tons per annum over the next 10 years. With a proud history that spans over 24 years, IMC has grown to be an efficient plantation and mill company.
