In Jos, the capital of the Plateau State, NASCO Group Nigeria has opened a multibillion-naira cornflakes plant.
In terms of technology, NASCO added that the new facility is state-of-the-art and among the best in the world.
“NASCO has been a household name not only in Plateau State and Nigeria, but across the African continent, having been around for almost six decades and identified as an icon of quality,” Governor Simon Lalong said when opening the NASCO Foods facility in Jos, the capital of Plateau State.
In fact, NASCO has embodied the meaning of its most recognisable crown logo, which stands for leadership, longevity, and loyalty, ever since it was founded here in Plateau State by the late great industrialist Ahmed Nasreddin in 1963.
Without a doubt, it has led its many rivals and served as a mentor to many young industrialists who have admired and occasionally tried to copy its products, according to him.
The company, he asserted, “bears all the hallmarks of endurance, durability, immense potential, and a unique talent for survival. I am confident to say that NASCO is one of the few businesses around whose chronicles can be written alongside the history of our dear State and country Nigeria.”
“To put it briefly, the company is one brand that perfectly captures Nigeria’s spirit of perseverance.”
I commend NASCO’s executive chairman, management, and employees for continuing the company’s founding father, the late Dr. Ahmed Idris Nasreddin, who built a strong foundation and fostered the business to growth and prosperity before being called to glory.
“NASCO has consistently been one of Nigeria’s most recognisable brands, and on this very significant occasion, it deserves to be recognised for its loyalty to the Nigerian consumer.
He said: “The secret, as we have found, lies in its focus on delivering a high-quality life to ordinary Nigerians like you and I.
Dr. Attia Nasreddin, Chairman/CEO of NASCO Group Nigeria, stated earlier in his remarks that “Nigerian farmers contribute to preserving the nation’s food security both now and in the future.
But if it doesn’t get to Nigerian households, food security is useless in and of itself. NASCO foods has worked tirelessly to close the gap between Nigerian homes and the inherent goodness of Nigerian maize through the construction of our cornflakes plant.
The phrase “Farm2Home” is not a trendy catchphrase. We have worked hard to make sure that every Nigerian benefits from the natural advantages of cornflakes, which raises the standard of living for a healthier and better quality of life, so to us, it’s a genuine movement,” he insisted.
We came to witness today’s grand opening of our multi-billion-naira cornflakes plant. This new facility is among the best in the world when it comes to technology.
He said, “This new plant will continue to flake the richly yellow maize we use, ensuring NASCO cornflakes are vitamin A-fortified.
We are aware of the high rates of vitamin A deficiency that have been observed in our populations: 13% among nursing mothers, 19% among pregnant women, and nearly 30% among children.

The Nutrition Society of Nigeria (NSN) has approved NASCO cornflakes as a reliable ready-to-eat cereal meal enriched with vitamins, I’m proud to inform you, he said.
As tens of millions of Nigerians and consumers in sub-Saharan Africa enjoy cornflakes, Nasreddin continued, “This new plant will be a capacity multiplier, allowing us to deliver high quality and affordable cornflakes with natural goodness remaining intact.”
