All the sugar and allied investments of BUA Group are set to take advantage of the entire sugar production value chain. These include investments in sugar estates as well as refining capabilities.
The Group currently has 2 ultra-modern and automated mega sugar refineries that utilize state-of-art equipment to refine high quality products for consumption and industrial uses. BUA is the only sugar refiner to have refining capabilities outside Lagos, Nigeria.
As response to Nigeria's backward integration policy in the Sugar Industry, BUA Group invested in large scale estates within the country to deepen local sugar production through the acquisition of the Lafiagi Sugar Company Ltd (LASUCO) in Kwara State in 2008 and also, the establishment of the Bassa Sugar Company in Kogi State.
BUA Group has also acquired about 70,000 hectares of land for the purpose of setting up large-scale sugar plantations. Upon fully coming on stream, these initiatives will add significantly to the development of Nigeria's local sugar industry.
