About Dantata Foods & Allied Products

Dantata Foods & Allied Products (DFAP) Ltd is a solely Nigerian company based in Kano involved in the production and packaging of food, beverages, and processing of agro allied products. In addition to these, DFAP is also involved in the production of nylon (polythene) and plastics.

We are among the top medium scale companies in northern Nigeria with a tremendous steady growth in the industry. We have over the years built a very solid customer profile which includes reputable multinational companies both locally and internationally, spreading through every sector of the Nigerian economy.

We strongly believe that commodity export which is one of our major areas of business does not face any threat of technological/ product obsolescence in the near future. We foresee a continuous growth over the coming years.
Though our basic export commodities i.e.; sesame seed, sorghum, millet, soya beans, etc require a massive storage facility in order to meet export requirements of both local and foreign customers, we need to stock adequate quantities of an entire range of commodities. Also our ability to have adequate quantities of commodities is to be ensure very competitive prices, availability of supplies and of course acceptable quality levels required by the multinationals. This has been our strength over the years and we continue to build on this.

In the past five years, we have substantially invested in IT and today, all critical areas of operations such as inventory planning, costing, sales and personnel are computerized and contribute towards the efficient running of the company.
We have a well staffed office in Kano that looks after the company’s sales and marketing efforts locally and internationally in addition to overseeing the importation, exportation, clearing and transportation of raw materials.

In 2006, DFAP acquired Samba Ltd, another manufacturing firm that has been involved in the production of polythene bags and packaging of consumables like rice, salt, etc. This acquisition has enabled DFAP to go into the production of nylon and food packaging. Currently, DFAP has the capacity to process 2, 040 M/Tons of raw material into nylon per annum. It also has acquired more machinery used in packaging consumer products.

The market for our products is increasing on a daily basis making it even more difficult to meet the demands of the local retailers in Kano and its environs. We have a history of dedicated customers, some of them inherited from Samba Ltd, and new customers who prefer to patronize DFAP because of its consistency in high quality products. Despite the challenges faced in the industry, DFAP has refused to lower its standards but instead has improved on its service to customers by trying to understand each customer’s needs through its persistent sales representatives who monitor the progress of the market, get feedback from customers concerning its products, and give feedback to management. Each product is designed to fit the need of each customer.
