Guinness Nigeria Plc gets 20,000 hectares of land for Cassava Cultivation and Processing

Posted on : 13 Jun, 2017


Oba Ewuare II of Benin Kingdom has offered 20,000 hectares of land to Guinness Nigeria Plc. The land will be used for cassava cultivation and processing.


The cassava farm worth over $20 million will be located in Edo state’s Ovia North-East local government area. The proposed cassava farm and processing place is expected to kick off during this year’s farming season.


The farm is slated to produce over 20,000 tonnes of cassava annually – that will be processed into cassava flour, starch, sugar and ethanol for industrial uses.


The Benin monarch’s move is seen as his commitment towards creating employment for the youth in Edo South senatorial district. The initiative is also expected to revive  agriculture to ensure adequate food supply and also provide raw materials for cassava based industries.


The palace will cooperate with the state government in facilitating investors in the sector.


Guinness Nigeria Plc has made some progress in agro businesses in the state and it is in line with the efforts of the palace. However, there are some challenges  particularly while commencing mass production of cassava and processing in Bini kingdom.
