Brief History about Union Dicon Salt Plc

Dicon Salt Limited was established in 1984. The Company was then a 60% – 40% joint venture between the Defence Industries Corporation of Nigeria (“DICON”) and its technical partners, AIMS of Brazil. By 1987, a small factory had been opened at Kirikiri Lighter Terminal in Lagos and Dicon Salt was importing bulk salt, doing some refining processes, and selling the product through the Company’s established network.

Dicon Salt Limited’s factories were closed in 1988 after a price war and were reopened, after nine (9) months. The months during which the Dicon factory was closed were used in upgrading the facilities. An ultra-modern salt laboratory was put in place for all analytical works and the company embarked on a search for producers of food-grade bulk salt.

The company merged with Union Salt Limited and was incorporated in 1991 as Union Dicon Salt Ltd. The then private Company became a Plc and later sold its shares to the public. It was listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (“NSE”) on the 23rd of September, 1993.
