Eagleson & Nito Concepts Limited was incorporated under the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on the 15th March, 2007. The company’s main line of business and interests are in Manufacturing and Supply of High Quality Cassava Flour (HQCF) and Commercial and Mechanized Farming of cassava tubers. The company started supply and logistics business immediately after incorporation on a very small scale and today has expanded with special interest and investment in Cassava processes and agriculture accounting for over 70% of its investment.
Focusing on cassava cultivation and processing and supplying companies including Honeywell Flour Mills Plc, and Flour Mills of Nigeria Plc with high quality cassava flour (HQCF) Eagleson also cultivates hundreds of hectares of cassava in Iseyin, through Oyo State anchor borrowers’ outgrower scheme, and working with IITA, ADP, GIZ and farmers to increase overall per hectare cassava yields and purchasing the tubers harvested for processing into HQCF.
Eagleson & Nito Concepts was a registered Consultant Company on Cassava to the Lagos State Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives for 3 years. The Company was also the Production and Management firm of Eko Cassava Factory in Araga-Poka, Epe, Lagos State.
The Eko Cassava Factory (“ECF”) project is a joint venture established between the Lagos State government and Eagleson to fill a vacuum: the lack of cassava flour processing facilities in Lagos, the concentration zone of wheat milling capacity in Nigeria, in the wake of the federal directive regarding wheat flour/cassava flour blends. The factory, inaugurated in November 2013 by the Executive Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola (SAN), began full operations in October 2013 and has begun to supply existing Eagleson clients. Eko Cassava Factory was managed by Eagleson and while faced with its own challenges (primary among which are lack of working capital and inadequacy of cassava tubers), the company continues to show signs of promise and Eagleson continues to seek solutions to improve its operations.
Our projects as mainly commercial / mechanized farming and processing of cassava tuber into High Quality Cassava Flour (HQCF) and Cassava granules (gari) provide certain benefits to the host State. It supports the current Government initiative on Agricultural Development. It is our firm belief that the projects are of major significance to local and national economy. The projects also enhance the general agricultural production in the country; it provides a flexible basis for further industrialization and industrial development as more factories that use our produce for their production will move closer to the source of raw material. The projects have improved and encouraged rural development while local and overall employment opportunities are enhanced. Socially, the projects have curtailed population migration in urban centres with its attendant problems while the quality of rural life has improved.
The company is a member of the Industrial Cassava Stakeholders Association of Nigeria (ICSAN), National Cassava Processors and Marketers Association (NCAPMA) and the National Cassava Growers’ Association (NCGA).
The Company is adequately staffed with young energetic and resourceful professionals who have the talent, technical proficiency and industry experience as well as communication skills to serve with distinction.
