The Candel Company Limited was incorporated in Nigeria (RC 204522) on the 10th of September, 1992, as a Private Limited Liability Company to develop market and distribute agrochemicals, specialized fertilizers and allied inputs to farmers in Africa.
Our Mission is to become the African reference company in the successful configuration and execution of integrated commercial agricultural value chain opportunities, by dedicating our resources, talents and energies to help improve agricultural productivity and preservation, thereby, the quality of life of the people throughout Africa.
For over 20 years, our innovative solutions and on-farm support by our field agronomists have helped Nigerian farmers significantly increase their yields and overall industry economics.
In the bid to become a key One-Stop Supplier for high quality inputs and to further consolidate our position as the acknowledged Market leader in innovation, we have pioneered the Production of Conservation Tillage Packages for Rice (R-Box) and Maize (M-Box) that guarantees optimum yield and quality. An innovation that was made possible through production of vigorous seeds, specialized fertilizers as well as Crop Protection Products tailored to Rice and Maize specifically.
The Company’s first class Agrochemical formulation factory in Nigeria located at the Lekki Free Trade Zone in Lagos is being completed. The factory, apart from supplying the Nigerian market, will enable the company to attain a prominent position in Africa thus, a potential generator of foreign exchange for the Nigerian economy. Through the years, The Candel Company has been very active in Agricultural development throughout the country and Ghana and the upliftment and empowerment of farmers; both at the grassroots and commercial farm level remains our priority.
