Annie Glidden Commodities is a newly commissioned industry for cashew, a major produce of Kwara State, processing.

According to a statement, His Excellency described the visit as something that will encourage more establishment and investments among investors.

“Nigeria is putting more interest in cashew processing. So it is a good thing to have a local production and make sure we export processed cashew nuts, rather than raw cashew nuts. This is about the third major cashew company in our state,” the governor said.
