An agro commodity export company, Witransaf, will tomorrow launch an online masterclass, which will train businesses on raw cashew nut export.

Speaking on the masterclass in Lagos at the weekend, Witransaf’s Head of Global Trade & Sustainability, Obinna Aruh, said the course is designed to not only teach the A to Z of exporting raw cashew nut, but it also equips the exporter with all the knowledge he needs to venture into agro commodity export.

He added: “We opted for a pre-recorded masterclass so that people can learn at their convenience and at their own pace.

“We noticed that in many live classes, people get bombarded with too much information because of the time constraint; so they end up not learning.

“In this masterclass, people can choose to learn in a day, two days or even three months period. The course is optimised so that you can learn with your laptop or smartphone devices.”

Aruh said the company decided to offer the course “in line with our company’s 2021/2022 sustainable development initiative. We aim to empower up to 5,000 people by 2025 by providing knowledge and skills training on the different value chains of agro commodity export.

“The Nigerian government is also trying to encourage more people to venture into export to balance trade and sustain our economy; as industry leaders, we see it as our responsibility to aid this effort.

“We also believe that by doing this, we are simply living our purpose, our tagline is Growing Together, and we believe in communal growth. Growth for us, for our neighbours and for our host communities.”
