Business-Buying And Selling216 Comments

You can make over 1 million naira this season storing and reselling red palm oil and I am going to show you exactly how to do it. It’s not difficult at all; in fact it is one of the easiest business you can do in Nigeria and make quick money within four months. I happen to know places in Nigeria where you can get this product at cheap prices and place where you can sell it at good price, I am going to make everything clear to you on this post…

What is Red Palm Oil? Red palm oil is natural oil extract from palm three fruit. You and I knows the importance of red palm oil in Nigeria. No home that doesn’t cook with it and no tribe or religion that forbids it. It is generally accepted and widely used, not only in Nigeria but around the world.


Using palm oil for cooking has greater health benefits over the vegetable oil as it is said to have high concentration of vitamin E in the finest proportion. Your body tends to get better health benefits as a result of the vitamin E present in the red palm oil rather than taking a commercial vitamin E capsule. It is also rich in carotene and possess strong healing power.

Why Trade On Red Palm Oil

Nigeria Red Palm Oil

Red Palm Oil

Palm oil is one of the commodity constantly in high demand in Nigeria. There is never a time it wouldn’t be a hot cake in the market and it is consumed at the same rate as rice and garri. Palm oil is currently sold in Lagos and other major cities across the country at N6,000 for 25liters but if you go to the farm areas where it is produced in quantity, you can get the same 25liters at N4,000.

There are even a time of the year you may get this product at N2,500 – N3,000 per 25litres. If you can get it in quantity during the time of surplus and store it for some months, you will sell at 100% profit. It is usually surplus around December to April and sells at the highest around July to September.

If you invest N500,000 and wait for 4 months, you will be making profit of another N500,000 without any substantial effort. That is a good deal by all standard and the more money you invest, the more profit you make.

If you decides to trade all season, that will even be better. All you need to do is to find out where it’s being processed in much quantity and buy at cheap price from there, transport it to the city and sell at good price, repeat your journey as often as you can and make money all year round.

How To Trade On Palm Oil Commodity

1. Secure a Shop – You will need a shop or any safe place for storage. If you have your own house, that will be nice, just dedicate one room for the storage. However, it will be better if you can rent a shop specifically for it preferably near the market.

2. Look for Places to Buy – There are many places you can get palm oil very cheap and in great quantity in Nigeria. It is available in bulk in various parts of Ondo State.It is also available in Edo State but the king of original, high quality palm oil is Ebonyi State.Travel round the states and source from the various local markets and local palm oil processors.

Transport Your Goods – If you have your own truck or van, that will be fantastic but if not, you’d have to make do with hiring. Buy everything you want to buy, get a truck to transport it to your base and store it in your shop.

Sell Your Goods – Wait until the price goes up then you open your shop and sell at a  very good price. It is a perfect way to invest money instead of keeping it to the bank with peanut paid as interest on fix deposit. It is like buying property and reselling at higher prices later.

If you need additional information on this, drop me a comment below and I will attend to it promptly.

  • Abbey Gbenga October 9, 2013

    I must say this is a masterpiece. Well done!

    I have a business plan on palm oil processing and the prospects are very high.

    This is an extract from my proposal:

    Sales Projection
    Presently, market price of palm oil ranges between 220 and 250 naira per litre. For the purpose of market penetration and acceptance, we plan selling at 4,375(25litres) to distributors so as to allow them a good profit margin. Therefore we will sell at 175/litre. Also the present palm kernel price is N50/kilogram and our weekly turnout of palm kernel is 2960kg, therefore there will be 11840kg per month.

    Working Capital (Monthly)
    Raw Materials 2,000,000.00
    Fuel 400,000.00
    Packaging 120,000.00
    Lubricant & Sundry Expenses 9,580.00
    Telephone 8,000.00
    Marketing Expenses 24,000.00
    Electricity 5,000.00
    Salaries and Wages 390,000.00
    Stationeries 2,000.00
    Miscellaneous Expenses 5,600.00
    Total Expenses 2,114,180.00

    Description Qty Rate Amount
    Palm oil 40,000litres 175 7,000,000.00
    Palm kernel 11,840kg 50 592,000.00

    Anyone interested in getting the complete proposal or advisory services on setting up production sites in any part of Nigeria can contact me

    Thank you.

    This is good. Can i have your phone number?

    Dear All,

    The writer of this piece couldn’t have written it any simpler or better for anyone to understand the basics of palm oil business. I have read through the comments as well from the various contributors, and one thing that must be said is that, the writer laid emphasis on only one of the finished products – that is, processed/refined palm oil.

    More or less, coming in as a “glorified middleman” after the growers and plantation owners have done the difficult bit of planting, cultivating, weeding etc.

    Then, there is the bit about waiting up to 5 years (for hybrid palm seedlings or up to 8 years for the local breed) following a regime of continuous spending and investment – in land, palm seedlings, fertilizer, labour, constant weeding and fighting of grass cutters (they love the taste of the palm tree leaves) etc before you even begin to see a kobo in returns.

    Let’s be real, the above is not all that glamorous or for the faint hearted – but if you are able to see past this, then, and only then, you may be up to a winner.

    My company is just at the tipping edge now, having sowed long and hard for 5 years+.

    Last year saw the first set which we planted in 2011 start to yield its first palm fruits, but as experts advice, you don’t really take that as the real McCoy. You let that first set ripen, wither, rot and fall off without harvesting.

    After which, the next set (this year’s produce) comes back in double force – bigger, better and juicier – then, you start to harvest it, and so shall it be for the next 70 to 120 years (average life span of a palm tree).

    Do you then go on to spend millions of Naira equipping your factory with milling machines, infrastructure, water, electricity, storage, labour, security etc and source buyers as well or do you settle to sell to middlemen as the writer suggested – possibly in an unrefined state as palm fruit bunches – at least, until a time that you have recouped some of your “never ending costs” and set up your own mill…? That’s a million dollar question.

    There are various entry points or possibilities for middlemen to come – as they say, there is enough oil (and profits) to go round.

    If you are out there and you have realistic aspirations of coming in as a middleman and partnering with my company based on well drafted and executed MoU, you may just live the dream of being in the palm oil business.

    No time wasters will be entertained, neither will any tutorial about the business be offered.

    This is just purely an invitation to one or two individuals out there with real prospects of venturing into this business.

    More information will be given to shortlisted candidates, however, we are based in the Agbara area of Lagos State, off the Badagry Express Road – with easy access to markets and industries that will need palm oil produce not just as edible oils but for industrial, cosmetics and biofuels…the list of uses of palm products is endless, hence, it is referred to as “the tree of life”.

    We are looking for a maximum of two middlemen for a massive plantation.

    Send in a brief profile, aspirations etc the more information the better, as only shortlisted persons will be contacted.

    • Darlinton Omeh January 6, 2016

      What a great comment, unfortunately, we don’t allow email addresses and phone numbers on comments. The best thing is to put down your farm location so that any interested person could come in there and see. Thank you!

      • Celestine January 6, 2016

        Well Sir, as you know, in the society we live in, that is certainly not practical – as in, putting the farm location here, so anyone and everyone should turn up, willy nilly.

        But then again, we appreciate you have rules and regulations you apply in running your website, which is respectable.

        It is however a pity that we are not allowed to publish our email address in this forum with a view to empowering would-be entrepreneurs – which it would have been assumed, was the whole essence of this write up in the first instance.

        All the best.


        • Patrick January 23, 2016

          Good information. I have a small African store overseas and I have been looking for ways to get at least 100 25 liters of quality palm oil from Nigeria. Any help is appreciated. I have been buying the ones from Ghana but my customers prefer the Nigerian ones. Good article. Thanks

    Kudos Mr. Darlington for this wonderful information. It is very enlightening and motivating. We need true leaders like you to grow and develop this nation. With your write-ups, you have proofed and shown that truely, there are thousands of jobs available around us from which any serious-minded could pick, rather than just going about with loads of certificates looking for white-collar jobs that are not even existing. The Palm Oil business is one of them.
    May God in His infinite mercies continue to bless and enrich you.

  • Monique March 25, 2016

  • bolaji April 20, 2016

    I manage close to 100 hectares of palm oil plantation at Govt land Oke Odan Eyekanse axis of Ogun State,about or less than one hour drive from lagos. Darlington has done a good job. To be honest, its better to buy palm oil, store and resell than advising to go into palm plantation. The price per 25litres went as high as 9000 naira few months ago and we sold as cheap as 4500 to 4700 naira middle last year. Since we run daily expenses, we also have to sell cheap even though we know if we can store it, we can make far better profit in couple of months.Anyway,our quality of palm oil will surprise You, made from improved tenera palm spp.if you are chanced, just come around, get a sample and that will answer a million and one questions.

    • Joseph – Abakus April 21, 2016

    Everyone want to start a Red Oil business. Yes, good but some questions have never been asked here or maybe I’d not read through carefully. To start a red oil business, I am sure one will need some empty 25 Litres Jerry Can to start with. How and where can one get this at a cheaper price or is it sold out rightly with Jerry can?
