Dangote Sugar Refinery was established in 1999 and commenced its sugar business in the year 2000 as a division within the Dangote Group held through its holding company, Dangote Industries Limited (DIL).
Following a strategic decision of DIL to unbundle its various operations, DSR was incorporated as a public limited liability company in 2005.
The restructuring was completed in January 2006, following the court sanction of the scheme of arrangement wherein all the assets, liabilities and undertakings of the erstwhile sugar division of DIL were transferred to DSR.
The principal business activity of DSR is the refining of raw sugar to produce fortified and non-fortified granulated white sugar. The Company distributes refined white sugar to consumers and industrial customers in Nigeria and exports its products to other West African countries, benefitting from the strategic location of its refinery in Apapa near the largest port in Nigeria.
DSR has its Headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria and has installed capacity of 1.44 million metric tons (MT) per annum with expansion plans in place.
