Our Story

Crest Agro was founded out of a strong belief in the transformative power of agriculture in Nigeria. We believe that commercial farming and industrial processing have the potential to be key drivers of the Nigerian economy.

Our vision is to be the leading producer of food grade cassava starch for industrial users in Nigeria and the broader West Africa sub-region. Crest Agro Products Limited (CAP) was incorporated in 2013 to produce high quality cassava starch for the food processing, pharmaceutical and textile industries. CAP is establishing an integrated cassava farm and starch processing facility on 13,000 hectares of land located in Kogi State.

At full scale, CAP will operate at a capacity to produce up to 100,000 metric tonnes of starch per annum and create employment for over 3,500 people across the entire cassava value chain.
