Already established in Ivory Coast and Nigeria, Senegal's heavyweight has formed an alliance with Wilmer to accelerate its development.
This time, that's right. Having failed once and for all to take control of the former Sonor, which once again became Sonacus in 2016, and that of Grands Molins de Decker (GMD), Petizen, the leader of the Senegalese food industry, achieved only a nice coup in and formed a joint venture with Singapore's Vilmer Palm oil. Both partners will eventually have to establish a peanut oil refinery and a flour mill in the future port of Bargny-Sendou. The beginning of construction of the complex is expected by the end of the year, according to agencies made Young Africa By Joseph Omis, founder of Patisen.
Another brand distributor partnership also links two players. Recently, the Senegalese company produces, under the Wilmer brand, exclusive boolean cubes for the Nigerian market. In return, Patisen buys her fats for the production of soups and oils for mayonnaise, chocolate and margarine. "For the last few days, we have been producing for them, and the production capacity of our plant is at risk of saturation because it is very fine and great."
