Small-scale edible oil milling operations: alternative business models for Ethiopia

Published by: MDG Achievement Fund


The Ethiopian government is aiming to achieve self-sufficiency in edible oil by 2015. The government is planning to ban the sale of crude oil and, compounded by input and technological challenges, this means that the future of the small-scale millers and the supply of two thirds of domestic production have become uncertain.

This research study presents an analysis of the opportunities open to and the challenges faced by small-scale millers in Ethiopia, with a special emphasis on noug seed millers, as well as portrays alternative business models that will improve the competitiveness of small-scale millers and increase food safety and security.
