The Beloxxi Industries, Nigeria’s indigenous prime biscuits makers has been nominated for the Nigeria Stock Exchange (NSE) Bulls Award for 2020.
The award nomination was announced to the fast-paced trendsetting company in a letter of August 4, 2020 from the NSE and the BusinessDay Newspaper.

The award nomination letter stated that: “The leadership of BusinessDay Media Limited and the Nigerian Stock Exchange are delighted to notify you that Beloxxi Industries Limited has been shortlisted for the Next Bulls Awards at the 2020 edition of the Top CEOs and Next Bulls Awards.

The organization has steadily expanded under your dynamic leadership, attracting broad positive attention from sector watchers.”
Since it commenced production as a sequel to the federal government ban of biscuits import in 2003 which made the biscuits trading and importing company to venture into manufacturing, Beloxxi, under the guiding investment and entrepreneurship acumen of the President/CEO, Obi Ezeude has pulled the stops and blasted off to the top in the corporate and real sector rating in Nigeria with an array of prestigious awards in Nigeria and overseas.
Most of these recognition have centered on ethics, conscientious business environment, outstanding acumen in grooming the younger Nigerians and giving them hope in employment and raising the inspiration that Nigerians can get it right with the grooming and growth of the nation’s economy.
In reaction to the announcement, Ezeude, Beloxxi CEO told Africa China Economy that “as usual I dedicate this coveted honour to the young Nigerians who believed in my dreams and have found a rallying point in the modest efforts that started blossoming into a bigger reality than we ever envisaged. It’s just a nomination, we know, but we also sincerely thank the bodies for such recognition while we await what happens eventually on September 5.
“I still believe that with the people standing with us, we can take on bigger challenges, accomplish higher goals and take the dream farther than we ever imagined from the outset.”
Ezeude also said that every recognition Beloxxi actualizes is just another challenge to move faster, do much more and aim higher.
