    Message from the GMD

    As one of the largest and most diverse food and agro-allied groups in Nigeria, we understand the importance of collaborating across the food value chain for mutual benefit. As such, we have over the years invested heavily in the development of a unique self-sustaining ecosystem that ensures our business is properly positioned to navigate existing and emerging macroeconomic conditions while guaranteeing the sustainable growth for the group in the future. From our suppliers, including several small-scale farmers who grow our raw materials, to our distributors and retailers who sell our finished products, and on to the millions of consumers who enjoy them daily, FMN is committed to creating shared value across our operations.

    Over the years, embracing sustainability in its entirety has spurred us to integrate further with our purpose of ‘Feeding the Nation, Everyday,’ into our business strategy. This has inspired the proper positioning of the Group’s businesses into four distinct pillars – Foods Division; Sugar and Sweetener Division; Agro-Allied Division; and Support Services Division. This strategy was inspired by the need to ensure that the group is appropriately focused for sustainable growth and profitability while providing the needed support system for our five key food value chains of grains, oils & fats, sweeteners, proteins, and starch.
