The newly appointed Group Managing Director, Dangote Sugar Group, Mr. Clark, was on Sunday quoted as saying this, adding that the company would continue to strengthen output, sales and distribution through a large distribution network.

He said there were plans to begin production in Savannah Sugar, one of the Dangote Sugar’s subsidiaries, with the aim of increasing its sugar refineries to five across the country.

He said Dangote Sugar embarked on the expansion as part of its efforts to boost the integrated sugar cane farming and sugar milling through increased plant capacity from 50,00 tonnes per annum to 200,000 tonnes.

According to Clark, the remodelling of the integrated sugar production will enhance the company’s value-chain process, as by-products will be extracted from sugar cane for production.

He said, “Unlike before, where we import raw sugar for refining, the economic model of the sugar plantation is profitable when examined from the value-chain process. We will change the whole process and seek partnerships with communities and state governments in order to aid the land acquisition for sugar plantation.

“The company is actively pursuing a backward integration master plan with a target of producing a total of 1.5 million tonnes of sugar per annum locally from its subsidiaries. We will also continue to strengthen output, sales and distribution through a large distribution network.”
