Sugar power in Lagos
Imports: With annual imports of $337.3 million in 2018, Nigeria is one of sub-Saharan Africa’s largest importers of sugar, second only to South Africa,. A closer look at consumption, however, shows that of the three largest importers, Nigeria’s sugar consumption per capita ranks lowest at 7 kg a year. Raw sugar is provided by imports from countries such as Brazil and India.
Farming: According to the NSDC, Nigeria’s total annual production from domestically grown raw sugar stood at 14,918 metric tonnes in 2017. This accounts for just 1% of total production. Sugar is primarily grown in Northern Nigeria where the weather and soil condition is most conducive.
Key players own farms across the country which supply their refineries with raw sugar. Dangote Sugar operates three plantations: Savannah (32,500 hectares) in Adamawa State, Lau Tau (30,000 hectares) in Taraba State and Tunga (60,000 hectares) in Nassarawa State. All produce from the farms is processed by the refinery located in Adamawa, while the Lagos State refinery processes imported raw sugar. The refined sugar is then stored in warehouses in Kano, Oyo, Lagos, Anambra and Borno states. Golden Sugar operates one 10,000-hectare plantation in Niger State, with one refinery in Lagos State. BUA Group owns two plantations, Lasuco in Kwara State and Bassa in Kogi. Both plantations have a total size of 70,000 hectares. The company’s two refineries are located in Lagos and Port Harcourt with a combined installed capacity of 1.44 million metric tonnes per annum.
A small fraction of domestic sugar cane is contributed by two main outgrower associations: Savannah Sugar and Oyo Sugar-cane Processors. These associations are made up of independent small-scale farmers, whose products are then sold to the key players.
