New Britain Palm Oil (NBPOL)

​NBPOL marks anniversary with aircraft branding

The firm has been serving Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands since 1967, contributing over K1.5 billion to the national purse.

Speaking during the ceremony, NBPOL general manager Harry Brock pointed out that Hoskins Airport, and specifically Air Niugini, has played an immense role in the company’s history. Not only has it made it possible for staff to travel but also by transporting the world renowned ‘dami seeds’ to other parts of the country and the world, setting a record quantity of 195 million seeds exited via Hoskins since 1975.

NBPOL to diversify due to limited expansion

PNG Country Manager, Robert Nilkare, says though there is opportunity for expansion of palm oil, there is only enough suitable land for a growth of between 22 – 24 per cent.

Nilkare said this when asked about NBPOLS future for the next 50 years during the Australia-PNG Business Council Forum in Port Moresby.
