Nigeria
Lagos, Kebbi, Access Bank Partner on Rice Mill Project for Food Sufficiency
The governments of Lagos and Kebbi States have signed a joint venture agreement for the establishment of a modern and commercially viable rice mill complex aimed at increasing Nigeria’s capacity to grow and produce rice for local consumption and enhancing the country’s food sufficiency.

The complex, which would be located in Lagos, has the capacity to process and mill 20 tonnes of rice per hour, just as the finished product would be known as “Laskeb rice”. According to Lagos State sources, the two state governments had over the past few months worked closely with Access Bank and a Mexican farming conglomerate, San Carlos, a company that has the requisite experience and modern technology for processing and milling of rice in commercial quantity.
