The quest by Nestle Nigeria Plc to continue to ensure good nutrition for Nigerians and indeed the West Africa sub-region has seen it engaging the federal government in a collaboration that will boost agriculture and enhance quality of life.

The need for the collaboration came to the fore recently, when the Minister of Agriculture, Alhaji Sabo Nanono, undertook a familiarisation tour of Nestlé Nigeria Plc’s headquarters at Ilupeju, Lagos State.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), for over 58 years, Nestle, one of the largest food and beverage companies in Africa, has been delighting consumers in Nigeria with high quality nutritious food products.

Receiving the minister, the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Nestle Nigeria, Mr Mauricio Alarcon, said: “We are very pleased with the visit of the minister.’’

“It is through this type of interaction that we can make a difference. We thank you for this opportunity to share some of our contributions toward developing the agriculture value chain.

“What we need now is the support of your ministry to scale the successes we have recorded in local sourcing and in farmer capacity building.

“We believe that this collaboration with you will make a great difference in the agricultural sector.’’

He added that the company was convinced that there were great opportunities in Nigeria, especially in the agricultural sector.

“We source 80 per cent of our products locally; 100 per cent of the maize and soya in Golden Morn are sourced locally even though it is cheaper to import.
