Wilmar Small Grower Support Colombia 2
Wilmar, together with Olenex and several partners, have launched the next two-year smallholder support program for small farmers and small growers of palm oil in Colombia, WISSCo2. WISSCo2 is the continuation of a series of successful training and knowledge enhancement programs that Wilmar and Olenex have been implementing in Latin America since 2016: WISSH and WISSCo1. Through WISSCo2, the partners seek to engage five mills from the north zone located in Cesar and Magdalena departments.

Through WISSCo2, smallholder farmers supplying to European consumers receive direct support to improve their practices.
Honduras is the third largest palm oil producer in Latin America and an important palm oil supplier to Europe. Smallholders play an important role in the country's total palm oil production; they make up close to 68% of total palm oil planted area in Honduras.
