Among the many agri start-ups in Nigeria, we find Ganado Farms, a multi-crop and integrated agribusiness involved in crop cultivation (and livestock breeding). The company’s journey, which started off in 2017, has really been a success story.
Ganado Farms grows crops such as cassava, fruits, vegetables, ginger, strawberry, potatoes, onions, watermelon, cucumber, lettuce and much more. It can be described as one of the most diversified companies involved in agribusiness in Nigeria.
Ganado Farms’ Head of Operations, Tomisin Inumo-Jacobs has stated that although Ganado Farms is still a young company, it nevertheless have the vision of becoming the pioneer of agro and techno platforms, through organic food, which will help in promoting and uplifting the agriculture sector in Nigeria and Africa at large.
Inumo-Jacobs said the company focuses primarily on large scale production of watermelon, cucumber, lettuce, cabbage, tomato, pepper, carrots, vegetables, potatoes, onion and strawberries. Unlike many other companies that focus only on farming and production of farm products, Ganado Farms is multi-faceted, as it also offers agricultural training and consultancy.
