NEDAN Oils and Protein is an oilseed processing facility with operations based in Mokopane, Limpopo. Operations include Solvent Extraction, Refining and Extrusion.
In the Solvent Extraction plant, the primary raw material (soya beans) are processed into:
• A high protein soya oil cake (animal feed ingredient); or
• A high protein soya meal; and
• Soya bean oil.
In the Extrusion facility the high protein soya oil meal is processed into textured vegetable protein, a meat extender/replacer.
In the Refinery the soya bean oil is processed into edible vegetable oil. Other oil types such as sunflower seed oil, cotton seed oil and palm oil, procured at various stages of processing (crude to fully refined) is also accommodated in the Refinery.
NEDAN has substantial processing capacity:
• Extraction 255 000 metric tonnes soya beans processed
• Refinery 84 000 metric tonnes fully refined edible oil
• Extrusion 37 200 metric tonnes textured product
Our vision is to be the most technologically advanced oil and soya protein processing company in Southern Africa, based on a culture of competitiveness, quality products, full traceability, freedom to innovate and a fervent pursuit of efficiency. We aim to achieve this through plant innovation, processing efficiencies and on-going product development.
