Dekel Agri-Vision 3,047 tonnes of CPO sold in July 2021, 67.5% higher than July 2020

Dekel Agri-Vision Plc (LON:DKL), the West African agriculture company focused on building a portfolio of sustainable and diversified projects, has provided a July production update for its 100%-owned Ayenouan palm oil project in Côte d’Ivoire and an update on the timing of the commissioning of our large scale cashew processing plant at Tiebissou, Côte d’Ivoire.

Key Highlights

Palm Oil Production

·      3,047 tonnes of CPO sold in July 2021, 67.5% higher than July 2021 as stock on hand post the high season was sold into a buoyant local CPO market

·      Local CPO prices continued to increase to a 2021 monthly high of €949 in July 2021, an 89.0% increase in average realised CPO prices compared to July 2020

Cashew Project

·      Construction has continued to advance, and commissioning of the Cashew project will start in September 2021

Lincoln Moore, Dekel‘s Executive Director, said: “Global CPO prices continue to remain strong on the back of tight global supplies.  We remain optimistic that prices should continue to be robust for the foreseeable future which bodes well for the remainder of our current low season and next year’s high season. Whilst the commencement of the commissioning of the cashew project has taken longer  than we had hoped, we remain well placed to be fully operational shortly and be well positioned to scale up production in 2022, which we expect will lead to a material step in Group revenue.”

Crude Palm Oil

·      Production: Like for like CPO production remained steady in July 2021 compared to July 2020 decreasing 2.8%

·      Sales: A strong month of sales, including the majority of stock on hand at the end of the high season, led to an 67.5% increase in sales in July 2021 compared to July 2020

·      Prices: Critically, CPO sales prices remained very strong at €949, our highest monthly price achieved this year and 89.0% higher than prices achieved in July 2020

o  International CPO prices continue to trade at multi-year highs in a range of €850 – €1,000 per tonne

Palm Kernel Oil (‘PKO’) and Palm Kernel Cake (‘PKC’)

·      Production: Production of both PKO and PKC was lower than July 2020.  The PKO plant experienced a period of minor operational disruption during July but is now fully operational. Kernel stocks on hand will be processed in August onwards meaning the outcome is a timing issue rather than a permanent loss of production

·      Sales:  257.7% increase in PKO sales quantities as stock on hand post the high season begins to unwind

·      Prices: 34.5% increase in PKO prices to €800 per tonne compared to €595 in July 2020.  Local PKO prices continue to slowly improve with July being our highest prices achieved to date this year

Cashew Project

·      As mentioned in our previous announcement dated 15 June, we experienced some disruption which resulted in a need to split our final shipment.

·      Despite the challenges, we are pleased to confirm commissioning of the Cashew project will start in September with the sorting facility in Building A.  This will be followed by Building B which includes the remainder of the production process and final packaging.

·      The process of commissioning Buildings A and B is expected to take around 60 days

·      We will keep the market informed of key milestones, including first production, during and following the commissioning period

·      Importantly, we remain in a position to ensure we can ramp up production as planned in 2022, our first full year of production.

Production Updates

The Company will continue issuing CPO production figures on a monthly basis to provide shareholders with visibility on operations and trading during the global COVID-19 pandemic.
