The firm was there to formally invite him as the special guest of honour at the commissioning of the Titan Farms Corporate Head office and rice factory located in Ibadan slated to hold in two months’ time, a statement from the firm indicated.
The Ooni was quoted as saying, “We should commend the management of this great company and other few ones across the country for standing up to the challenges in the competitive market; it is obviously not easy. What I want to encourage our people to do is to patronise this brand, and I assure Nigerians that they’ll be proud.”
Earlier in his address, Founder and the Chief Trader of Titan Multi-business investment, Mr. Gbenga Eyiolawi, stressed the readiness of his organization to uphold its efficient service delivery mechanism.
He said, “Titan is an agro-commodity processing and trading outfit, buying farm produce directly from Nigerian farms and process them with our partner-mills and processing facilities using their High-Tech equipment in the Northern part of the country.
“These processed goods are packaged in our brand and sold directly to distributors across South West Nigeria.
“Pioneer of such goods is our rice brand known as Titan Rice which is produced and packaged in the North and then sold in the south.”
