Dangote Flour Mills Plc (DFM) commenced operations in 1999, as a division of Dangote Industries Limited (DIL) – one of Nigeria’s largest and fastest growing conglomerates.
Following the strategic decision of DIL to unbundle its various operations, Dangote Flour Mills was incorporated in 2006. The restructuring was completed in January, 2006 when the Federal High Court sanctioned a Scheme of Arrangement wherein all the assets, liabilities and undertakings of the erstwhile flour division of DIL was transferred to Dangote Flour Mills.
DFM has mills located in strategic positions across Nigeria – Apapa, Ikorodu, Ilorin, Kano and Calabar. These expansions were in response to a growing national demand for flour and flour based products and in addition to the company’s drive for increased market share. Thus from a modest beginning the company has grown to become one of the industry leaders. DFM is in the business of flour milling, processing and marketing of branded flour. The Company offers downstream value-added products through subsidiary companies. The business unit currently has one wholly owned subsidiary – Dangote Pasta Limited
