Impact, special achievements & commitmentsOribi Oils is a project in Oribi Flats and the tribal area of KwaNyuswa, in KZN province, South Africa. As a producer operation, we produce essential oils and their derivatives. Our primary focus is to create jobs through entrepreneurship. We equip previously-disadvantaged farmers with the skills and resources required to start their own essential oils agri-business. These include: inputs, mentoring, agricultural extension, inspection, and certification via an Internal Control System (ICS). Since 2012, the project has created over 70 co-operatives and 30 smallholders in tribal land which directly supports the livelihoods of over 500 people. The FT Fund is used to improve the livelihoods of the producers in the tribal lands, and the workers of the commercial farmers in the Oribi Oils group.
In summary, Oribi Oils is committed to supporting, practising and promoting Fair Trade.
