Leading omnichannel retailer, FoodCo Nigeria has opened two new outlets in Abeokuta, Ogun State as part of its 40th anniversary celebrations.
The new outlets located in Idi-Aba and Ita-Oshin bring the brand footprint to 18 across South-West, Nigeria.
Commenting, FoodCo Managing Director, Ade Sun-Basorun attributed the company’s success in the last four decades to consumer loyalty.

He said, “The reality of today’s retail business is that only innovative, customer-focused brands can successfully navigate the terrain and deliver sustainable investment returns. In just this decade, we have gone through two economic recessions, battled a global pandemic, and have had to adapt to the demands of a digital transformation that has redefined the nature of retail.
“On our 40th anniversary, we are humbled that we have not only been able to weather the storms, but we continue to put together the building blocks for sustainable growth in the coming years ahead.”
