To strengthen production of yams in Nigeria, an agro allied company, Leky Mills, has promised to support local farmers with the launch of its yam cubes, tabs and chips.

The firm stated that farmers played critical roles in the value chain of the production of yams.

The chief executive officer/cofounder of Leky Mills, Mr Derinsola Adebayo, who disclosed this during the launch of processed yam products, which come in different product sizes and packaging of 600g and 12.5kg in Lagos, said the launch of the products would bridge the gap between local production and consumption in domestic and foreign markets.

He said, “We are here to launch our new product offerings and unveil our brand ambassador, Teni. We believe she has a strong personality and engages with the youth.

“We also want to share this new innovative product to the world – that we came up with a solution; not just any solution but a Nigerian and African solution to a problem we all face.

“We believe Leky Mills offers those solutions towards providing quality and affordable processed yam products to consumers.’’
