FrieslandCampina WAMCO to launch Nigeria’s First Expertise Center for Dairy Development

Published

on

Dairy giant FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria PLC, in partnership with key stakeholders will launch Nigeria’s first expertise Center for dairy development in a few days.

The initiative – Center for Nigerian Dutch Dairy Development (CNDDD) – will focus on improving dairy productivity and sustainability throughout the entire dairy value chain in Nigeria, based on Dutch expertise gained for more than a century.

According to Ben Langat, Managing Director, FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria PLC, the new Center will foster cooperation among dairy stakeholders.

In a statement issued in Lagos, Langat said, “The Center for Nigerian Dutch Dairy Development will engage and promote cooperation between the government, private sector, academics, students and dairy farmers. It will undertake activities that will improve the dairy chain in Nigeria, focusing on both the upstream and downstream sides of the chain.”

The CNDDD will be the expert research and training institute for dairy development in Nigeria. It will focus on breeding, farm and feed management, quality control, and productivity (yield per cow).

Putting things in perspective, Langat also explained that the Nigerian dairy sector presently faces major challenges, “however, FrieslandCampina WAMCO in partnership with the Federal Government is determined to transform the sector from its current subsistence phase to a commercial quality-focused model” he said.

FrieslandCampina WAMCO envisages that as the country’s population continues to grow, the establishment of a strong agricultural sector is one of the pillars that will bring economic and social stability in Nigeria. This requires a fundamental long-term development of all areas needed to create a strong effective and efficient dairy sector based on milk yield, milk quality, breeding strategy, feeding, collection infrastructure, and a route to the market.

Confident about how the Center for Nigerian Dutch Dairy Development (CNDDD) would deliver on its objectives, Langat said, “with FrieslandCampina’s dairy expertise and grass-to-glass philosophy, we are committed to growing the local dairy industry. From our experience, close co-operation between public and private sector has proven to be a key success factor.”

“FrieslandCampina is pleased to be able to share its 150 years’ experience in dairy farming and production with its Nigerian partners through the Center for Nigerian Dutch Dairy Development (CNDDD).”

Stakeholders are invited to join this landmark event scheduled to hold on Thursday, 15 October 2020 at 10:00a.m. by registering on  https://tinyurl.com/CNDDD-Launch

FrieslandCampina WAMCO has been at the center of developing local milk sourcing through its Dairy Development Programme (DDP). This investment spanning across 5 states in Nigeria with over 9000 dairy farmers (including 950 women) has seen solid and sustained growth over a decade. Learning from experience, FrieslandCampina WAMCO, therefore, aims to broaden and deepen inclusive growth in local milk sourcing by partnering to provide the required expert support and improve knowledge of local dairy farmers.

Nana Tamakloe, the face behind Accra Fashion Week and Africa’s leading fashion blog, FashionGHANA.com, has been invited as a notable presence at the ongoing BRICS Fashion Summit in Moscow. The summit, hosted by Moscow Fashion Week, kicked off its proceedings on November 28 and is set to wrap up on December 2.

Tamakloe, known for his influence in reshaping African fashion, has been turning heads with his creative international approach. His journey from launching the continent’s premier fashion blog in 2012 to curating the celebrated Accra Fashion Week has been marked by trendsetting moments.

Last year, Tamakloe found himself on the international stage and being invited to and honored in USA at the Memphis In May Festival in the USA, sharing the limelight with figures like King Otumfou, Stonebwoy, and Okyeame Kwame. This global recognition speaks volumes about his impact on Ghanaian culture, and now, he’s bringing that influence to Russia to the BRICS Fashion Summit.

Organized under the umbrella of Moscow Fashion Week, the BRICS Fashion Summit has become a gathering of fashion elites. Editors, event organizers, representatives from major publications, clothing specialists, bloggers, instructors, and emerging designers from various corners of the globe have converged to create an atmosphere of creativity and collaboration.

Originally synchronized with Moscow Fashion Week, the BRICS Fashion Summit is more than just a stylish rendezvous; it’s a strategic endeavor to cultivate the ethos of the BRICS Fashion community. Stemming from the BRICS—an intergovernmental organization uniting Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa—the fashion community aims to redefine the industry’s dynamics.

The summit goes beyond national boundaries, boasting participation from over 30 countries, from the streets of China to the landscapes of Nigeria. The BRICS Fashion Summit is positioning itself as a global hub for sartorial excellence.

Tamakloe’s role at the summit is more than just attendee status; he’s on a mission to ensure Ghana doesn’t just participate but actively shapes the narrative of the BRICS Fashion Summit. His goal is to play a decisive role in steering the creation of the BRICS Fashion community, putting Ghana at the forefront of global fashion discussions. Other guest from Ghana also include researcher Makeba L. Boateng and Nana Brenu.

As the spotlight intensifies on Moscow, Nana Tamakloe’s active presence becomes a symbol of Ghana’s growing prominence in the international fashion scene. The BRICS Fashion Summit isn’t just about trends; it’s a platform where cultures meet, and Tamakloe is steering Ghana’s fashion story into the global limelight.
This year, Accra Fashion Week is poised to welcome representatives from 17 nations to the vibrant city of Accra. This spectacular event is slated to unfold against the iconic backdrop of the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum, from December 13th to the 17th, 2023. The anticipation is further heightened as delegates from the BRICS Fashion Summit are set to grace the occasion, amplifying the international flair.

Adding an extra layer of significance, the African Fashion Summit, scheduled for December 15th, 2023, promises to be a pivotal moment. This special day will feature an exclusive update on the happenings at the BRICS Fashion Summit, creating a nexus where global fashion conversations seamlessly converge. Accra Fashion Week is poised not only to showcase diverse styles but also to serve as a dynamic platform fostering international collaboration and discourse. Save the dates for a week of sartorial splendor and cross-cultural connections.
