With the completion of yet another ultra-modern rice processing mill by EbonyAgro Industries Limited, the country may soon return to the path of self-sufficiency in rice production, as against the massive importation of the staple food commodity from South Eastern Asian countries.
Situated in Ekpa-Omaka in Ikwo, a rice-planting suburb of Ebonyi State, the 50,000 tons mill will redefine rice production in one of leading agricultural states in the country. The major private sector investment in Ebonyi, EbonyAgro Industries rice processing mill, is the outcome of a public private sector partnership investment initiative.
