Outspan Nigeria Ltd (an Olam Group company) in partnership with Kano Dairy Co-operative Union has inaugurated two new milk collection centres in the state.

The company said each of the milk collection centres, is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment that ensures the integrity of the raw milk produce.

Outspan, which also upgraded a bulking centre as part of the activities, said they were going to provide transport equipment, including motorbikes and specially equipped tricycles that can effectively transport the raw milk to the end-users.

Speaking at the ceremony, the Kano State Deputy Governor, Dr Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, commended Outspan’s efforts and expressed the state’s readiness to partner with serious investors in the dairy sector.

In his keynote address, Praveen Paulsamy, GM Outspan Nigeria limited, reiterated Olam Group’s commitment to the dairy sector.

He outlined Outspan’s 4-pronged action plan that includes the establishment of MCC’s, pasture development, productivity improvement initiatives and a capacity-building programme targeted at developing local talents.

The event was attended by various dignitaries including representatives from the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Kano State Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Co-operatives, Chairman of Dawakin Kudu Local Government Area, among others.

Outspan Nig Ltd and Kano Dairy Union had signed an MOU in early 2021 with the aim of developing and executing a backward integration plan that seeks to enhance and support the dairy value chain in line with the federal government’s plan for self-sufficiency in the industry.
