Welcome to Gradesa S.A.

¿Who we are?

Founded around 1992, Grasas y Derivados S.A., GRADESA S.A. is located near the town of Ciénaga, Magdalena, on the Colombian Atlantic Coast. Given the technological characteristics of the manufacturing plant and the application of a development policy with a marked emphasis on Research and Development, it has been possible for GRADESA S.A. to project itself as one of the main African palm oil processing companies in the country and its production of crude palm oil.

The plant is a fully integrated unit, whose processes range from the extraction of palm and plamiste oils, the physical refining and fractionation of these oils to obtain oleins and stearins with diverse characteristics and different uses, to the production of margarine and special fats, with high quality standards, for the baking, confectionery and confectionery industries. It also has a bottling plant for cooking oil, which packages high quality palm oil and blends it with other oilseed oils, such as soybean and sunflower.
