TransCorp’s Teragro Commodities partners Coca-Cola, to be sole local provider of concentrates
Teragro Commodities Limited, the agricultural arm of Transnational Corporation of Nigeria, has entered into partnership with the Coca-Cola Bottling Company, to be its sole local concentrate supplier in Nigeria.
Teragro processes orange, mango and pineapple concentrates for industrial markets at a processing plant in Benue State.
The Benfruit plant with a capacity of 26,500 metric tonnes is the first and only Nigerian-owned and operated juice concentrate processor in the country.
It first began producing concentrates for Coca-Cola in 2014.
Transcorp in a statement said: “The partnership reflects Teragro’s ability to deliver a product that meets international quality standards. The company has its ISO 9001 and ISSC22000 and has proven it can compete with concentrate imported from countries such as the United States, Spain and South Africa, among others.”
