STATISTICS FROM CBN and FAO showed that Nigeria, with over 160million people is grossly underprovided with a vital food component. For instance, this report revealed that milk production has been on the decline. This is compounded by a very low supply of eggs with an average of 10.56g available per person per day as against the recommendation of one egg (56.7g) per person in the day which will translate to 30 eggs per month per person.
This results in a supply and demand gap (demand for egg outstripping supply) this is one of the consequences of the high cost of egg products. This has also been compounded by the rising cost of birds’ feeds in the country.
To reduce these pains on the citizenry the Government has shifted attention to all sub-sectors of agriculture with a view to making the country self-sufficient in food production, reduce importation, conserve our foreign exchange, diversify the economy and above all, create jobs in the country. It also called on all Nigerians to help actualize these objectives.
This is a call we heeded to through the birth of C-3V FARMS LIMITED.
