Flour Mills of Nigeria Plc, foremost market operator in food and agro-allied products has outlined an ambitious business plan for the next five years. The 59 year old company is targeting doubling its business within this period from N600 billion revenue to over N1.2 trillion in 2024.

The strategy of the business expansion of the  company which has over the years diversified into fast moving consumer goods is not only organic growth, but acquisitions and partnerships.

Paul Gbededo, Group Managing Director of the company which controls about 42 percent of the flour business told BusinessDay recently at the celebration of the company’s trade partners for their contributions to the FMN business growth that the business expansion is to ensure that the vision of feeding the nation and Africa is realised.

“Value and job creation is our focus and that will be in the downstream. It is not just good to acquire assets in the upstream but we need to focus on the downstream and create more value”. To ensure continuous business growth, it rewarded its business partners for their patronage and performance. The event which was attended by over 500 guests, culminated in the handing over of 17 trucks to the top performing dealers.  Top 5 dealers were celebrated with the special award of 30-ton trucks and trailers which further expands their business model with primary distribution capability.

This year’s conference theme , “Breakthrough partnering for growth,” looked back at the rich and unique heritage the company shares with its partners and reinforced the continued commitment towards mutual profitability and growth.

“Our success story as the leading consumer business in Nigeria, will not be complete without our esteemed dealers and partners who form an integral part of how we are achieving our purpose of feeding the nation every day.’ As we continue to look towards the future, our aim is essentially to promote stronger ties with our partners, because we know that the sustainability and future growth of our business depend on it” Gbededo said.

In his comment, Devlin Hainsworth, Managing Director, Foods division of the company said “After nearly sixty years of doing business in Nigeria, we can say that there are very few companies in Nigeria today, who understand the business environment as we do. FMN has a culture of winning, that is backed with a robust portfolio of quality products many bearing the Golden Penny name, and sound consumer and market fundamentals that are necessary to drive sustainable future growth”
