The Candel Company Limited was incorporated in Nigeria (RC 204522) on September 10, 1992, as a Private Limited Liability Company to develop, market and distribute seeds, agrochemicals, specialized fertilizers and allied inputs to farmers in Africa.

The company’s first class agrochemical formulation factory in Nigeria is located at the Lekki Free Zone. The new factory apart from supplying the Nigeria market with a local formulation facility enables the company to attain a dominant position in the West and Central African regions of the global industry, thus a potential generator of foreign exchange for the Nigerian economy.


The Candel Company Limited innovative solutions of over twenty (20) years and on-farm support by our field Agronomists have helped Nigerian farmers to significantly increase their yields and economy of the industry at large. CANDEL having in-depth knowledge of the Agricultural industry has dedicated time to resource-driven research into farming system and specific innovations. This has appreciably assisted us to recognize the requirements of various famers thereby constantly developing and improving crop protection products. In the same vein, we have extensively proffered solutions to a wide range of Agricultural enterprises including but not limited to Rice, Maize, root and tuber crops and plantation crops (e.g. Rubber, & Cocoa).

In the bid to become a key One-Stop supplier of high quality inputs and to further consolidate our position as the acknowledge market leader in innovation, we have pioneered the production of conservation tillage packages for Rice (R-Box) and Maize (M-Box) that effectively guarantee optimum yield and quality. This exemplary innovation was made possible through exhaustive production of vigorous seeds, specialized fertilizers as well as crop protection products tailored towards both arable and plantation crops.
