The Pwani Story

In 1981, three minds came together to build what is Kenya’s most iconic manufacturer of edible oil and fats company; Pwani Oil Product Limited.

Ramesh Kanji Malde together with his brothers, Anil and Naresh Malde, began Pwani Oil Company production of coconut oil in Mombasa. The operations expanded at the Jomvu Pwani Oil Products factory with corn and sunflower manufacturing before settling for palm oil refining in 1985–a site which Pwani Oil Product are still located at till today.
