Flour Mills of Nigeria (FMN) has completed a name change and rebranding process for two of its subsidiaries as part of an ongoing process of creating a collective identity across its agro-allied division,.
Consequently, Agro-Allied Syrups Limited and Agro-Allied Farms Sunti Limited will now be known as Shao Golden Farms Limited and Sunflag Farms Limited respectively.
The change, which is part of a more extensive group-wide restructuring process, commenced during the first quarter of FMN’s financial year in 2019. The management had informed that the restructuring process was initiated to improve the efficiency and competitive advantage of its various businesses in the agriculture sector, the company said in a statement sent to BusinessDay.
Shao Golden Farms Limited (formerly, Agro-Allied Syrups Limited) is one of the largest commercial cassava farms in Nigeria with over 5,000 hectares of arable land in Shao, Kwara State. The farm was established to secure timely and sufficient availability of raw materials for the operation of FMN’s downstream subsidiary, Premium Cassava Products Limited. On the other hand, Sunflag Farms Limited (formerly, Agro-Allied Farm Sunti Limited,) is a 4,500-hectare farm along the Niger River basin. It is currently being prepared for FMN’s seed development programmes.
FMN has assured its customers that the change of identity will not affect existing policies on products or customer relations, but instead improve their existing quality commitments.
With the new brand identity, Shao Golden Farms Limited and Sunflag Farms Limited’s are now in line with the broader brand guideline of FMN Agro-allied division and are poised to continue to deliver on the promise of producing quality products to customers.
