The company’s 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.
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. It also involves the reintroduction of a robust out-growers scheme and the charting of sustainable community relations and development initiatives guided by consultations and engagements with the local communities. The Dangote Sugar Refinery (DSR), Numan, is therefore targeting to produce 9,800 metric tonnes of sugar per day at the end of the current expansion project on-going in the company.
