GVL’s Oil Palm Mill Is Good News, but Will the Company Keep Its Promise?

Several years ago, when Golden Veroleum Liberia (GVL) and Sime Darby, Malaysian palm oil companies, entered Liberia, they pledged to introduce value-added products, such as cooking oil, Vaseline and other cosmetics products for export to world markets.

That is how Mrs. Williette Luke helped keep the family going. Her husband, Mr. Henry Luke, was an electrical engineer and one of the pioneers of the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC).
