AgroEknor has received follow-on investment from Aruwa Capital Management to procure inventory and meet demand from a soaring order book (over 8,000 tonnes), expand its product range (it has a medium-term goal to add complementary superfood products) and improve its infrastructure. The company has also begun constructing a fumigation chamber and acquired a new warehouse with a 1,200-tonne capacity.
Aruwa’s initial investment helped us a great deal to meet and surpass our ambitions including the commencement of the construction of our fumigation chamber with a capacity to process 120 tons of cash crops weekly. With the follow-on investment, we will complete and launch our fumigation chamber, an important integrated backend infrastructure in our business which enables us process and export, globally acceptable cash crops to our clients.Timi Oke, CEO
