Nigerian firm to begin export to Ghana
Candel Company Limited, one of Nigeria's agricultural inputs development and distribution companies, has made known its plans to commence exportation of agrochemical products to Ghana.
Mr. Charles Anudu, Chairman, Candel disclosed this during plant inspection and assessment visit to the company by the Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, of Ghana. The visit was aimed at ensuring compliance with global environmental and quality standards.
Anudu said though the plant was inaugurated about three months ago, it had capacity to export crop protection chemicals and foliar fertilizers to Ghana, assuring that other African markets would follow in line with its vision as an international agro-input company with Nigerian content.
He said the company has been operating in Ghana for about 15 years, trading in agrochemical products imported from Asia but the company now want to export it own made-in-Nigeria products, which are made with the context of the West African farmer as the focus.
The company will supply its own distribution network as well as private label customers in that market. Anudu speaking on the company's commitment to quality said it will ensure the quality of the chemical content in its bottle is exactly as written on the label.
The Head of Chemical Control and Management Centre of EPA, Ghana, Dr. Sam Adu-Kumi, who spoke shortly after the inspection commended the company's management on the factory's initiative which, he noted would set a good foundation not only for the nation's economy but also the entire West African Sub-region.
