Bolawole Enterprises Nigeria Limited (BENL) is a joint venture company incorporated in Nigeria in 1986.
The company is engaged in the business of agricultural commodities. We deal with cocoa beans, cocoa butter, cocoa cake, Crude Palm Kernel Oil and Palm Kernel Cake.
Our company operates mostly in the south-western states of Nigeria, with its base at Ilesha, Osun State, although cocoa is sourced from over 40 Licenced Cocoa Buying Agents buying and grading cocoa from across Nigeria.
Also we have been given International Award for Leadership in Image & Quality by Global Trade Leaders, Madrid (Spain) in the year 2012. Over and above all these and through the encouragement given by the NEPC and its officials, BENL has engaged in backward integration and has expanded by setting up of a Palm Kernel Oil processing Plant.
Apart from owning cocoa farm plantations, and buying cocoa from licensed buying agents; we grouped some cocoa farmers and trained them on the cocoa sustainabilty development. All these efforts have cumulatively given BENL an excellent track record in procurement and export of the products to world cocoa leaders like, Barry Callebaut Sourcing AG, ADM and KVB of Germany.
All these steps have earned BENL continuously as the outstanding Cocoa Exporter in Nigeria for years 2011, 2012 & 2013 by an agency of the Federal Government of Nigeria (NEPC) in conjuction with a world wide recognized institution solely involved in the business of export.
