Women testing a manual oil expeller

Expeller test!

1 February 2014

Today we ran a test with a small manual oil expeller in Boyouye. An expeller is a mechanical tool for extracting oil from raw materials.

The women loved its simplicity as it requires little effort. It is perfect for a household but unfortunately it is too small for larger production. The women could easily use heavier, more powerful tools. I had done some research for medium-sized presses but could not find any manufacturer. If it doesn’t exist, we’ll have to make it!
