Corporate Social Responsibility
At Dangote Sugar, we create and add value to our shareholders and all other stakeholders. From transforming raw materials into finished nutritious fortified products for our customers/consumers; and the substantial payments made to the value chain of suppliers, contractors, distributors, customers, employees as well as the government through taxes.
We are mindful that the sustainability of our business is interwoven with the well-being and advancement of the communities in which we operate. Therefore in addition to creating jobs and other economic opportunities, we provide education, free health care and other support services to the communities in which our pilot backward integration projects site, Savannah Sugar Company Limited is located.
Consumer Health and Safety
The health and safety of our customers is of utmost importance. We comply with all relevant safety, health, environmental, quality and food safety legislation in Nigeria. Our production processes are operated under the ISO 9001:2008 quality and Food Safety Management System.
We support the Federal Government’s and NAFDAC’s strategies to tackle micronutrient deficiencies by fortifying our sugar with Vitamin A, thereby contributing to improving public health.
Outgrower Scheme & Development
We work closely with local indigenous sugarcane farmers at Numan, Adamawa State through our established sugarcane out grower development scheme, to improve the community farmer’s participation in the Sugar for Nigeria Project, boost their income, while improving cane quality and yields at the mills. The same scheme and our robust community development projects will be implemented across all our Backward Integration Projects sites.
