Nestle Nigeria Plc, said it has partnered with the International Fertiliser Development Centre (IFDC) to train 30,000 Nigerian farmers on resilient farming of sorghum and millet over the past two years as part of its effort to source 100% of its raw materials locally.

This was disclosed by the company’s Corporate Communications and Public Affairs Manager, Victoria Uwadoka, during a media briefing at the company’s corporate headquarters in Ilupeju, Lagos, recently.

She said the project has started yielding results, adding that farmers now produce higher quality grains and record less post-harvest losses, thereby, earning more, while personal income and livelihoods across the communities where the company sources its raw materials have improved considerably.

Uwadoka said Nestle Nigeria’s vision is to create a value chain in the ecosystem that would benefit everyone involved in the organisation’s business.

“We believe by creating sustainable value for the society and our stakeholders, we would ensure the continued longevity and success of our business – a concept called ‘Creating Shared Value’.

“In line with our purpose, which is enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future, creating shared value is embedded in everything we do. Our initiatives are founded on three pillars: individuals and families, our communities and the planet. We work alongside partners and other stakeholders to create value for the individuals and grow our natural ingredients, the families that enjoy our nutritious products, the communities where we live and work, and the planet upon which we all depend,” she said.
