The “Sugar For Nigeria” Project.
Dangote Sugar Refinery Plc, is an integral part of the Federal Government of Nigeria’s National Sugar Development Master Plan. In 2012, Dangote Sugar committed to becoming an integrated sugar business, serving local and export markets from integrated sugarcane plantations and factories across Nigeria, over the next 10 years.
Our goal is to achieve the capacity to produce 1.5 million tonnes of refined sugar annually from sugarcane plantations covering more than 150,000 hectares of land across a number of sites in Nigeria. This step will move Dangote Sugar from a port-based refining to fully integrated sugar production within Nigeria, thereby helping Nigeria to achieve self-sufficiency in sugar production, and create over 100,000 new employment opportunities.
The first phase of the project is at an advanced stage with the rehabilitation and expansion of Dangote Sugar, integrated sugar estate at Numan, in Adamawa State; reintroduction of a robust out-growers scheme and the charting of a sustainable community relations and development initiatives guided by consultations and engagements with the local communities.
In addition, acquisition of other integrated sites at other locations close to suitable land with good irrigation, and our key markets have begun and the engagement of the required technical competence for the project is ongoing.
