Ellah Lakes - Building Sustainable Agribusinesses.
Until 2016, Ellah Lakes Plc engaged in fish farming and agricultural related activities in Nigeria. It produced and marketed fresh water fish, until the company ceased commercial operations due to unrest in the Niger Delta region.
The company, listed on the Main Board of the Nigeria Stock Exchange (NSE) was founded in 1980, by the late Senator F. J. Ellah, and is headquartered in Benin, Edo State Nigeria. For decades, Ellah Lakes supplied Nigerian households with great meals sourced through sustainable fishing practices and led the industry in thinking about the environment and sustainability, first, ensuring that nature will continued to replenish herself to meet the demands of the growing population.
In May 2019, Ellah Lakes completed the acquisition of Telluria Farms, an Oil Palm production company. This acquisition refocuses the corporate mission of Ellah Lakes going forward on the production of Oil Palm and its derivative products. With the acquisition, Ellah Lakes owns a land bank of 2,400 hectares dedicated to the production of Oil Palm. Ellah Lakes is embarking on an aggressive mission of rapid growth of Oil Palm plantations in Nigeria.
