Fan Milk Plc (a Danone Company) “the Company” in partnership with the Ogun State Government, through its Ministry of Agriculture, intends to kick off a dairy backwards integration project for the improvement of the State’s agricultural value chain and enhancement of local dairy production.  Fan Milk is planning to develop a flagship dairy farm (including pasture development and the launch of a Danone training institute for local farmers) within the Odeda Farm Institute in the Odeda Local Government Area of Ogun State

The Company’s Managing Director, Mr Ferdinand Mouko stated that this partnership falls in line with the Company’s business development strategy and as a responsible corporate citizen, the Company is committed to advancing its business in a socially and economically beneficial manner:

Mr Olayinka Akinkugbe the Chairman of the Board  added that the intention to partner with Ogun State followed the Company’s close observation of the laudable efforts the Ogun State Government has put into supporting and partnering with local and foreign investors. Hence the partnership with the Ogun State to harness the social and economic potentials of participating in local dairy production.

Within this project the Company also intends to develop a technical institute to train local dairy farmers and improve their skills.  The Company will leverage the key learnings for piloting its project in Nigeria with Danone’s business expertise which spans over 100 years being actively involved in the dairy value chain with great success.
