Dozztephan Industries Ltd was incorporated as a limited liability company in October 2008. However operations started in 2011. Prior to the ban on importation of packaged ready-to-drink juice into the country by the Federal Government in 2002, PIKO juice was imported by Dozzy Nigeria From Junet Industries, Lebanon. Junet is world acclaimed producer of fruit juice with strong presence in Africa. The ban, therefore paved the way for the establishment of the plant under technical partnership with Junet Lebanon with a mission to consistently produce and deliver high quality products under the strictest quality control mechanism using the most modern machinery and equipment in a safe and hazard-free work environment.
The juice market in Nigeria is full of untapped opportunities. Although the competition is robust among the few existing industries, but there is always an opportunity to explore using quality products, aggressive and well equipped marketing personnel. We believe that PIKO though relatively new among the various brands in the market, is product for today, tomorrow and the future. Our quality is high and our price is affordable.
