The organizers of the award said, it took into cognisance Stallion Group’s “efforts in maintaining the largest rice processing business in Nigeria, with a well-articulated and implemented backward integration framework.”
They also noted that Stallion’s brand, Royal Stallion Shinkafa, had maintained an unassailable rice brand, providing unparalleled quality to the Nigerian consumer, such as outstrips even imported brands.
“We identify your success and commend it with this award,” it said.
Notably, Stallion has announced plans to expand capacities in Nigeria to 1.5 million tonnes in collaboration with farmers, institutions and other stakeholders in the rice value chain.
