JOF Nigeria Limited has made a huge capital investment for the construction of an ultra modern salt refining plant in Nigeria, at OPIC Estate, Agbara, Ogun State. Our primary objective is to have a plant to satisfy the requirements of the food industry for industrial refined salt and more specifically for manufacturers of bouillon cubes who require specifications which are superior to those of ordinary table salt.
Our investment has been encouraged and supported by the major players in the bouillon cube market who appreciate the considerable added value which will be created in their supply chain and manufacturing operations.
Our Properties and Infrastructure department focuses on optimizing our assets, i.e. real estate, plant and equipment to achieve the greatest return with the objective of providing the best possible service to the company and our clients. Aside from this primary goal, the department also maintains a strong portfolio of investments consisting of blue chip stocks and shareholding in Oil Palm production.
JOF trades in commodities such as milk powders, anhydrous milk fat, monosodium glutamate, vegetable fat, salt, sugar, nucleotides, caramel powder, cocoa beans, cocoa powder, cocoa butter, phosphates and carbonates, glucose syrups, and starch. It also trades in packaging materials, finished products and engineering spare parts for use by multinational manufacturing companies in the food and beverage industry in Nigeria.
In its capacity as a Customs accredited and licensed Clearing and Forwarding Agent, the company manages import pre-shipment documentation, monitors the shipment while in transit, undertakes pre-arrival documentation, and ensures efficient clearing upon arrival. The company’s strong reputation for compliance with statutory regulations earned it the “Fast-Track” concession from the Customs and Excise authority.
JOF owns its warehousing & distribution facilities and offers an advantageous client-dedicated, Customs Bonded Terminal with a container storage facility that can hold 2000 units of 20FT containers. With requisite infrastructure for Customs and other Governmental Agencies on ground at our facility, it allows for a quicker engagement with significantly shorter clearing times. These create significant value for our clients by eliminating detention bills on containers.
Order planning, warehousing, inventory management and call-off services are rendered with strict application of best practices such as FIFO, LIFO, batch management, space optimization, TR management, rodent control and periodic fumigation.
We promote best practices built on road-worthiness, timeliness and safety. Our service delivery is supported by highly trained and experienced drivers equipped with CUG lines to facilitate effective communication. The roadworthiness of our one hundred 30T and 40T, traceable Mack and Iveco trucks is assured by maintaining a fully-equipped repair and maintenance workshop, while our back-up recovery vehicles ensure prompt attention in cases of breakdowns.
