Why should you invest in Nigeria?

There are many reasons why you should consider investing in Nigeria. Nigeria is the largest economy in Africa ahead of South Africa, Egypt and the rest. With so many opportunities for growth, PwC has projected Nigeria among the top world economies in 2050 ahead of Italy, Canada, South Korea, Spain, Netherlands, Australia and others.

With over 200 million people….the best deal is to provide the food!!

Agriculture accounts for 33 percent of GDP and provides employment, both formal and informal, to more than 60% of the population.

However crop production dominates the agricultural sector and accounts for about 85 percent of agricultural activities; livestock and poultry accounting for 10 percent, fisheries and forestry, less than one percent…

…but rapidly growing.

There is a growing demand for animal protein in Nigeria!

Poultry production has not kept pace with the rapid increase in domestic consumption.

There is enormous potential for the poultry industry in Nigeria to enhance food and nutritional security, while contributing to household and economic growth.

There is no more efficient place to invest than in pullets. Pullets are the future of an integrated company. Successful pullet rearing is simply attention to detail, management, serology, biosecurity, vaccination, and worming.

Leveraging livestock for human nutrition

Livestock are a key resource for economic growth in many countries, both at national and household level. Animals are important assets and an essential source of income for livestock-keeping households. 

Well-managed and utilized livestock can play an important role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

The livestock sector plays a crucial role in the social and economic development of a country, especially in low- and middle-income countries. It directly supports the livelihoods of 600 million poor smallholder farmers in the developing world. Livestock are a direct and indirect source of food for rural and urban households. It is estimated that livestock-derived foods, or animal-source foods (ASF), contribute 18% of global food energy consumption and 34% of global protein consumption (FAOSTAT, 2016). ASF are a unique source of high-quality proteins and bioavailable essential vitamins and minerals. 

Leveraging the potential of livestock and optimizing efficiency in production systems is now more important than ever before given the current global food security and nutrition situation.
