TechInAfrica – Farmcrowdy Group has recently announced a strategic partnership with two of Nigeria’s agribusiness companies—Best Foods Livestock and Poultry Limited. The companies have been in the business for more than 16 years with a focus on processing and marketing livestock products.
The agreement allows Farmcrowdy Group using its financial, technology, sales, and marketing resources to increase Best Food’s presence in the market with Farmgate Africa, the newly launched of Farmcrowdy Group’s subsidiary. Moreover, they will work with the effort to improve the livestock value chain across the nation through Farmcrowdy’s production.
This includes the effort to improve the quality of meat production and processing using international standards to become the best source of processed meat in the country, which hopefully reduces the need for processed meat importation.
“According to state records, Lagos state alone consumes over 6,000 cows daily. This partnership with Farmcrowdy Group will create easy access to funds that will be used to establish the best meat processing practices utilized around the globe. This will eventually lead to Best Foods expanding beyond the meat industry as both companies have synergy in other areas that will be good for Nigeria’s overall agricultural space,” said Emmanuel Ijewere, Chairman of Best Foods Group.
Group CEO and Farmcrowdy Group’s Founder, Onyeka Akumah commented: “We are going into this relationship with Best Foods for the long haul, to improve how Nigerians access quality beef. This relationship will see all partners work together to raise quality cattle, process and sell quality beef to major buyers around the country. We are therefore excited that we have a respected expert like Mr. Ijewere offering his years of experience, network, and assets to improve our process while we look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship for many years to come.”
