Tin Can Island


Tin Can Island was built in 1981 by C & C Construction, an arm of the Chagoury Group, to service the growing demands of its flour mills.

The Chagoury Group’s Tin Can Island is one of the principal gateways for commodities arriving into Nigeria and services wheat deliveries to both Ideal Flour Mills in Kaduna and Nigerian Eagle Flour Mills in Ibadan.

The storage capacity of the silos is 28,000 metric tonnes of grain. The grain is then transported by Fleetwood Transportation, another Chagoury Group company.

The terminal handles wheat, maize and malt (for the brewing process) and can take delivery of up to 4000 metric tonnes of grain per day. The facilities can handle ships of up to 30,000 tonnes and there is also a grain bagging facility on-site.
