One of the most obtrusive plans of recent administration of the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) has been to resuscitation of the nation’s agro-based economy which was the major source of wealth before the exploration of oil in the Niger-Delta basin in the southern part of the country in the 1960s.
Rice, a staple food in most homes, has an ever-increasing demand that is herculean for the nation’s recovering agro-allied sector to satisfy even after laudable intervention policies by the government. Patod Energy has identified this supply deficiency as an attractive investment venture and a rare opportunity to showcase and utilize solar power as an efficient and effective alternative power source to drive industrialization in one of the nation’s most critical sectors – and by extension aiding and promoting sustainable growth and development in line with the United Nation (UN)’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Patod Energy has acquired 10 acres of land in Onicha-Ugbo, Aniocha North Local Government Area, Delta State, Nigeria, where we, in conjunction with our partners, Buhler Group, are constructing a state-of-the-art rice mill with a capacity to process … tonnes of locally harvested rice per day. This mill is projected to serve ‘PATOD RICE’ our brand’s pilot output and also serve the needs of local rice farmers spread across the state. Patod rice is also creating opportunities for prospective marketers and distributors nationwide.
