In 1984, in the city of Kano, a seed of entrepreneurship was sown. From a retail shop selling soft drinks and snacks, the seed grew into retail trade, ice block manufacturing, transportation, distribution, importation until finally, this seed became Nosak Group.
Today, the Nosak group is a key player in the Nigerian economy, offering vital services in retail, manufacturing, logistics, finance, agriculture, real estate, international trade, petroleum and health care thanks to a deep understanding of the Nigerian market and a network of local and international alliances.
As many chapters make a good storybook, our subsidiaries make up crucial chapters of the story of the Nosak group and they make it a great story to tell. It all started with Nosak Agencies Limited in 1984, the pioneer company in the group which specialized in the importation and marketing of ethanol.
Today, it has grown and evolved into the investment arm of Nosak group. The second chapter of the Nosak story is a somewhat natural progression to the manufacturing of ethanol and other industrial and consumer based chemicals through Nosak Distilleries. Incorporated in 2001, today, Nosak Distilleries is the largest manufacturer of ethanol in Nigeria with a storage facility of 24 million liters and currently controls more than 65% of the domestic supply market. It owns and operates a modern distillery for ethanol production at Amuwo Odofin Industrial Layout in Lagos. With an installed capacity of 400,000 litres of ethanol per day, Nosak Distilleries Limited expects to meet 70% of the local demand for ethanol and other industrial chemicals in Nigeria.
To further capture the market for industrial chemicals, Zex Standard Chemicals Limited was established to import and trade chemicals like ethanol and other pharmaceutical raw materials. With facilities around Lagos, Zex Standard Chemicals is positioned to be the foremost provider of pharmaceutical chemicals in the country.

As a need to optimise the 1,300 hectares of oil palm farm at Saturn Farm, Nosak Farm Produce Limited was established. Nosak Farm Produce Limited is a 200 tonne capacity fully automated vegetable oil refinery with 12 tanks measuring 2.7 million litres. It is strategically located at Apapa with a 3 kilometer pipeline from ABTL to Alapata to Waziri Jetty.

This is towards the expansion of the refinery from 200TPD to 1,000TPD within the next 2 to 3 years. The Nosak Famili Oil brand of cooking oils are now available in stores nationwide. This venture further represents the group’s commitment to taking full advantage of Nigeria’s abundant agricultural resources for the benefit of the country and its people.
