We Have One Goal
FMS Farms was established in 2009 and commenced full operations in 2014 with pilot sites in 3 locations across South West Nigeria. From inception, the farm is focused on bridging the food security gap in Nigeria and reducing importation of food into the country. The company has continued to grow its investment and operations in line with its strategic ambitions, with a total investment of NGN800million going into infrastructure development and the expansion of its Cassava and Vegetable projects.
The cassava farm development is on a phased approach, building up production over a 3-year period to meet the requirements of the starch factory by the end of the 2021 planting season. An initial 50ha has been cultivated and this is being scaled up to 400ha in 2019, increased to 800ha in 2020, and 1200ha in 2021.
FMS has expanded its vegetable production business capacity with the installation of 9,200sqm of greenhouse facilities, a dedicated 20Ha land for open field cultivation and enhanced distribution capabilities, all of which has favorably positioned the company in the supply chain of fruits and vegetables (tomato, cucumber, bell peppers, habanero peppers, and leafy vegetables) in Nigeria. At peak, the infrastructure on the vegetable farm will consist of 57,600sqm of greenhouse facilities, 100ha open field land for cultivation, and operate a world class vegetable production, processing, packaging, and storage facility that is fully integrated with a distribution network that assures market reach.
Need to find out when – FMS entered into a strategic alliance with IDH – the sustainable trade initiative, to drive the implementation of its outgrower and community farm support scheme that will incorporate over 3,000 local farmers into the cassava and vegetable production chain. The company also has a partnership agreement with the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) for the production of quality cassava stems and research to support the cassava farm.
