Today, 5th February 2020, we had a Partnership Meeting with the delegation from AMOBYN Nigeria Ltd (Offtaker of the Ogun State Broiler Project in Odeda), at the Office of the Honourable Commissioner for Agriculture in Ogun State.

The Partnership meeting bordered on discussions in areas of mutual benefits including: Empowerment of existing farmers, Inclusive plan to integrate youths from other Local Government Areas and Scale up of activities in the Poultry Value Chain for Food Security and Prosperity in Ogun State.
In his remarks, the Group Managing Director of AMOBYN Nigeria Ltd, Dr Ayoola Oduntan, shared the company’s vision to build a National Platform for the production of day old chicks and frozen chicken in Nigeria. He further highlighted two schemes of possible partnership with Ogun State: Agripeneur Scheme (An Outgrower Scheme for farmers in Nigeria) and the Noiler Scheme (To increase proteins intakes of underprivileged in rural areas). He later commended the Ogun Agric Team for the Management of the Ogun Broiler Project which broke all existing records with an overall average weight of 1.91kg and a mortality rate of less than 2.5%.

He highlighted Ogun State Government’s resolve to drive Agricultural Industrialization as a key strategy for job creation and income generation for farmers, youths and unemployed graduates in Ogun State. He further noted other adjoining areas which include: value chain training and post-training linkage of smart farmers to inputs, credits, technology and assured markets.
