Fan Milk, a Danone Company, makers of frozen dairy and ice cream brands, including Super Yogo and Fan Vanille, is set to unveil its newly completed model dairy farm in Odeda, Ogun State on Tuesday.

According to the company’s Managing Director, Mr Ferdinand Mouko, the company intends to bring the expertise of its parent company, Danone, to the fore.
He explained the company decided to embark on this project to contribute to the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) backward integration policy for the improvement of local milk production and to support the Federal Government’s economy recovery growth plan which aims to improve food self-sufficiency in the country.
He added the partnership falls in line with the company’s business development strategy and as a responsible corporate citizen. His words:
“Our objective is to ensure that we partner with local dairy farmers in the Odeda community in Ogun State to accelerate the development and expansion of the local dairy market while also creating the social and economic impact of improving the livelihood of the ecosystem within which we operate,” he said.

Chairman of the board, Mr Olayinka Akinkugbe, said the intention to partner with Ogun State followed the company’s close observation of the laudable efforts the Ogun State government has put into supporting and partnering with local and foreign investors.
He added the partnership with the Ogun State will harness the social and economic potentials of participating in local dairy production.

He added the company also intended to commission a dairy training institute and a milk collection centre to train local dairy farmers and reduce the importation of milk in Nigeria.

“The Company will leverage the key learnings for piloting its project in Nigeria with Danone’s business expertise, which spans over 100 years being actively involved in the dairy value chain with great success,” he said.

The intention of the company was also to ensure that its dairy backward integration plan would create social impact by supporting the dairy farmers in Ogun State as it continually leverages government’s support and the relevant experience Danone has developed along its journey in Africa.
