Alluvial has historically focused on rice production, but with growing domestic demand and the skills in house we have expanded to include an active agriculture and cassava arm to our farms. We are also looking into other opportunities.
Alluvial produces large quantities of rice paddy for Nigerian millers. We are increasing local rice competitiveness and taking up a key challenge in the Nigerian rice industry, which is the low capacity utilization of existing rice mills as a result of inadequate investment in paddy production.
Nigeria is the world’s largest producer of cassava and cassava derivatives are used in the food and pharmaceutical industries amongst others. Local and international demand for cassava is growing. There is an opportunity to produce large quantities of cassava for the emerging cassava processing industries. Alluvial is taking advantage of this opportunity to work with local farmers to supply the market.
