Farmally investment limited, an Agric technology investment company has agreed to partner Agege-Lagos Abattoir on supply of cattle.
Speaking at the abattoir in Agege-Lagos (South West Nigeria), during a strategic visit last week was Mr. Tunji David, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Farmally who said he was very impressed with the hygienic standards of the automated slaughter house at the abattoir.
Mr. Tunji David assured the chairman of the Lagos abattoir, Alhaji M.B. Yussuf who doubles as the Chairman of Lagos State Butchers Association (LASBA) of a quality and hitch-free supply of well breed cattle from across Nigeria to the Lagos consumer market.
Alhaji M.B Yussuf, in return gave his assurance to work with Farmally for harmonious chain of demand and supply of quality cattle for the Lagos consumer market.
In his own remark, Mr. Mafindi Tafida, Executive Director, Farmally, said “We intend to be the single largest supplier of well breed cattle in Nigeria”.
Tafida noted that Nigeria does not have a large breeding cattle ranch as majority of cattle supply comes from neighboring African countries, and that his organization, Farmally, seeks to fill that gap with an efficient supply strategy.
Farmally CEO, Mr. Tunji David added that the Agric technology company intends to acquire and raise over 10,000 tropicalized freisan cows in partnership with the Nigeria Farmers Group and Cooperative Society (NFGCS) within the next 5 years through its crowd-funding platform for milk production and quality beef supply.
In a video posted on his Facebook page, Mr. Retson Tedheke, National Coordinator, Nigeria Farmers Group and Cooperative Society (NFGCS) said the has launched it pilot hydroponics plant house in preparations for the 10,000 cattle program.
Farmally, an Agro-allied investment company that recently launched its premium gold brand of Rice into the Nigerian market, is ready to explore new segment in the beef producing sector.
