As most of the land available currently is natural forest, oil palm expansion is becoming a major threat to Cameroon’s as well as the rest of Congo Basin's rainforest. The farmers in some villages in Cameroon don't believe in industrial scale palm oil production and have started to run small scale plantations with the objective of providing palm oil to local markets. More and more oil palm farmers avoid selling their oil palm fruits to PAMOL (the big state owned company in Mundemba) and prefer sell it to local artisanal mills.
