NSCT to build cottonseed storage units for its plants in Dapaong and Blitta  

(Togo First) - In Togo, Nouvelle Société Cotonnière du Togo (NSCT) plans to rehabilitate and build infrastructures under its 2019 budget. For example, in the Savannas region, the company wishes to build cottonseed storage facilities for its Dapaong plant.

In the Central region, in Blitta more precisely, the NSCT also intends to build similar facilities.

These, the firm hopes, would help it manage its outputs more efficiently, and produce 200,000 tons of cottonseed by 2022. During the 2017-2018 campaign, the NSCT’s production stood at 116,000 tons, thus 8,000 tons more than the previous year.

The increase is mostly to be attributed to various programs initiated to boost the profitability of the agricultural sector. According to data from the ministry of agriculture, husbandry and fishery, the sector contributes nearly 40% of Togo’s GDP and cotton generates almost 40% of the country’s exports revenues.
