The issuance was well received by the domestic investor community – reflected in the 1.15 times oversubscription to the issue – which is a testament to the very positive perception of the brand. Flour Mills is one of the Nigeria’s largest and the oldest integrated food business, with a broad product portfolio and a robust pan-Nigerian distribution network. The Group has the largest food basket offering of any Nigerian Fast-Moving Consumer Goods Company with over twenty-eight (28) consumer products.
