Impact, special achievements & commitmentsOribi Oils is a producer group operating the Oribi Flats and KwaNyuswa areas of KZN, South Africa. They started in 2012 as a collaboration between large-scale commercial farmers and previously disadvantaged, emerging farmers. The farmers do the planting, farming and harvesting and Oribi Oils (Pty) Ltd supplies support services in the form of advice and mentoring, organic farming training and ICS, access to best practice information, and the receipt of oil from the distillery followed by batching, storage, QC, testing, marketing, sales etc. Since their inception they have run a "sponsor-a-farmer" (SAF) project, which provides support and sponsorship to emerging farmers. SAF is creating jobs by developing a sustainable essential oils industry in South Africa. But it is not just about jobs, it is about entrepreneurship. They are equipping previously-disadvantaged farmers with the skills required to start their own essential oils agri-business. Their focus is on the tribal community of KwaNyuswa, in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, where the unemployment rate is estimated to be approximately 85 %.
