Nosak Distilleries acquires 6,000 hectares of farmland in Edo to develop Cassava value chain

Nosak Distilleries Limited, a leading ethanol refiner, has announced the acquisition of 6,000 hectares of arable farmland in Edo State as part of its effort to source its raw materials locally.

The company made the announcement at the fourth Cassava and Starch Africa Summit which held in Accra, Ghana recently.

While expressing his delight about the summit to the organisers, the Group Executive Director, Corporate Services, Nosak Distilleries, Osagie Ogunbor, said: “The two-day summit was a good ground to learn new trends in the exploration of cassava and its many by-products. We participated in this year’s summit as a result of our diversification in the agricultural sector and to explore the option of cassava to ethanol locally”.
