Julius Berger Diversifies Into Agriculture, To Process Cashew In Lagos

Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, Nigeria’s leading engineering and construction company, has diversified its investment portfolio into the agricultural processing sector of the nation’s economy.

According to a statement made available to Daily Trust by Barr Moses Duku, Media Relations Officer of JBN, the company is set to commission its first ever cashew processing plant in Epe, Lagos State.

The statement said the plant would be responsible to the environment as it is committed to implementing a no-waste operational practice.

The cashew project’s commodity and marketing Manager, Oyindamola Asaaju, made this known during the Agricultural Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) conference, held at the NAF Conference Centre, Abuja, recently, the statement added.

“Clear national occupational standard and demand-driven international product quality would define and drive the company’s operations and productivity in the cashew processing industry in Nigeria, where only 5% of Nigeria’s production is currently locally processed,” Asaaju said.


A pioneer initiative between the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Delegation der Deutschen Wirtschaft in Nigeria (Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Nigeria), the conference attracted both local and international corporate and research organisations in the cashew production and processing value chain. It also attracted a high government presence, including the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and other directors and heads of departments.

According to the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC), Nigeria has untapped potential of $3.4 million USD from exports of cashew kernels. The top five markets with the highest potential for exports are EU, Japan, Canada, and UAE.

Arguably the finest construction/structural company in Nigeria.
Julius Berger has demonstrated quality and excellence in executing key projects in Nigeria over the years.

This company will handle a road project for you and be rest assured that it'll stand the test of time.

The cashew value chain is huge and holds a great potential for the country through export earning if properly harnessed.
Nigeria is blessed so many Agro commodities that have good export value, but then lack of government backings and policies is affecting things

This is really sad. Kogi is the largest cashew producing state in Nigeria (no other state comes close) yet, decades after the creation of the state, no governor has been able to influence or attract a common processing plant to the state.

Of course, these sorts of investments are privately funded but how many private investors are aware of the potentials in Kogi? This is where a sensible governor comes in. These bas.tards won't create publicity and awareness about the potentials in the state.

They're not bothered about attracting any investor. The stup!d crook of a governor in Kogi has spent billions of Naira creating awareness about his "dead on arrival" presidential ambition but not a single kobo on how to harness the potential of cashew. They simply don't give a f*ck about anybody.

Many Lagosians have neither seen nor tasted cashew in 30 years yet we have these stuff wasting away annually in Kogi state. Yahaya Bello and his group of looters don't care.
