In line with the Federal Government’s policy of boosting rice production, the BUA Rice Ltd, a subsidiary of the BUA Group, has entered into a partnership with the Rice Farmers Association of Nigeria (RIFAN), Kano State branch. The partnership would soon be firmed up with the signing of an agreement.
Group Executive Director, Strategy and Innovation of BUA Group, Kabiru Rabi’u said, “BUA remained genuinely committed to government’s resolve to reduce the nation’s dependence on imported rice by boosting local capacity to produce, process and package rice.”
According to him, the partnership would support the rice farmers to take advantage of the CBN Anchor-Borrowers Scheme, adding that, “… BUA will provide end-to-end support to the value chain in ensuring that its milling facilities are utilized optimally. “
