Located in Kaduna State, the 200-hectare farm, which would open in 2022, will have housing for 400 dairy cows, modern milking parlours and technology, grass lands and living facilities for 25 employees.

Commenting, Managing Director of Arla Nigeria, Peder Pedersen, said, “There is a great need for nutritious food and dairy products to satisfy the growing demand from Nigeria’s fast growing population.”
