COMPANY PROFILE

Dangote Flour Mills Plc commenced operations in 1999, as a division of Dangote Industries Limited (DIL) - one of Nigeria's largest and fastest growing conglomerates.
Following the strategic decision of DIL to unbundle its various operations, Dangote Flour Mills was incorporated in 2006. The restructuring was completed in January, 2006 when the Federal High Court sanctioned a scheme of Arrangement wherein all the assets, liabilities and undertakings of the erstwhile flour division of DIL was transferred to Dangote Flour Mills.
From an initial installed capacity of 500 MT per day at its Apapa mill, Dangote Flour has expanded rapidly by opening in quick successions three other flour mills in Kano (2000), Calabar (2001) and Ilorin (2005). Each of the mills started with an installed capacity of 500 MT per day but all of them have subsequently expanded resulting in a total installed capacity of 5,000 MT per day, distributed as 

follows:

  •  Apapa - 1,000 MT per day
  •  Kano - 500 MT per day
  •  Calabar -1,500 MT per day
  •  Ilorin -1,000 MT per day

These expansions were in response to a growing national demand for flour and flour based products in addition to the company's drive for increased market share.

  •  Dangote Agro sacks Limited,
