Daabon Plantations in Colombia
Daabon Group has 3 beautiful organic palm tree plantations located on the western slopes of the Santa Marta mountain range. The climatic conditions, wide availability of pure and non contaminated water flowing down from the snow peaks to the farms and year long extended sun light are ideal for palm fruit production. Daabon is the only company in the world that has vertically integrated the palm oil production from seeder to farming, harvesting, mechanical pressing, physical refinery and finally to end products such as RBD, Stearin, Shortenings, Olein, Kernel oils, Margarine, Non Dairy Coffee Creamers and byproducts such as Kernel cake and vegetable residues for compost making at our own facilities.
Due to the extensive hazards posed by animal fat cholesterol and excessive levels of trans fats derived from hydrogenation, organic palm fruit oil is becoming the preferred option of high quality, health conscious food processors. Organic Palm fruit oil does not require hydrogenation as it is solid at room temperature, therefore avoiding harmful trans fatty acids.
There are several uses of palm fruit oil. Among the most common our customers use our products in baking, frying, food mixes, coatings, ice cream and others.
Today Daabon owns 2,500 ha. of palm tree plantations and it is sponsoring the development of an additional 2,000 ha. owned by cooperatives of small farmers. This is another important project of great social impact in the region where Daabon is committed to improve the living conditions of the local communities.
