He said the price of the product had not been increased.

Suarau said the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode administration was committed to enhancing food production in the state.

“Our LAKE Rice is of good quality. The major difference between LAKE Rice and imported rice is that the imported has a minimum storage of five to six years storage life span, but LAKE Rice is fresh,” he said.

The commissioner urged the residents to access the rice at Lagos Agric Input Supply Authority, Ojo, Farm Service Centres, Ikorodu, Agricultural Development Authority, Agege and other centres.
