Meadow Foods Partners With Premier Feeds to Improve Farmer Linkages!

Meadow Foods Nigeria Limited through its GrowIT project has signed a memorandum of

understanding (MOU) with Premier Feeds, the leading animal feed brand in Nigeria, to supply

16,000 metric tonnes of maize and soya beans for the 2021/2022 farming seasons.

Speaking at the sign off event held on Wednesday at the Atiku Abubakar University hotel (AUN

Hotel) Yola, the co-founder of Meadow Foods Adaku Omidosu said “the partnership will provide

linkages to smallholder farmers so they can access to premium markets and earn decent


Omidosu noted that “one of the challenges smallholder farmers face is the numerous middle

men who further shrink their already lean profits. “What you just witnessed today is ground

breaking. Our off takers are committed to mopping off all the harvests of the farmer groups in

our network”, she added.

On his part, Dalyop Austin Pam, head of sales and marketing said “the agreement is key in the

efforts of Premier Feeds to empower smallholder farmers by off taking their harvests, thus

strengthening the food value chain”. Pam added that his “organization is happy to work with

smallholder farmers to ensure a win-win situation. While we access quality seeds for

processing, the farmers also earn decent margins and improve their livelihoods”.

Further speaking at the event, the General Manager Premier Feeds, Jean-claude Baur said he

is pleased with the agreement, noting that “when farmers are empowered, whole communities

are impacted. Living standards are raised and criminality is contained”.

Meadow Foods GrowIT project is designed on proven business models which show that

leveraging an integrated solution that digitizes soil to shelf helps smallholder farmers and

agricultural MSMEs to become more resilient to shocks and market forces.

GrowIT entrepreneurs called GEs are trained to provide much needed support to smallholder

farmer collectives that enable farmers to access credit for climate-smart inputs while linking

them to higher value output markets.
