    “Tiger Brands has decided not to provide further financial support with respect to its investment in Tiger Branded Consumer Goods Plc of Nigeria.”

    According to OSG, sources close to the South African company said Tiger Brands decision followed their inability to make money from Dangote Flour Mills after committing about 200 million dollars or 65 per cent equity in the Nigerian flour mill in 2013.
