“We have huge purchase capacity. Agric had always been the front burner of Nigerian economy before oil, so the focus here is to develop the economy in agriculture beyond oil. Although, there are challenges in the industry but with our competent expertise and adequate resources, we are covered.”
The Managing Director, Anuli Onyeagu said: “Our products are Organic natural products with no adulterations, we do not cut corners with our produce, we ensure that we go through appropriate processes for qualitative result. Agriculture is not a child’s play, especially poultry, as a lot of investment is put into it. Agriculture is indigenous and if all the pros and cons are in place, it can be very lucrative.
“However the major challenge is the extreme high rate of tax charges by the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS). They slam us with outrageous tax bills as much N15 to N20million and when you factor in your cost of production and overhead, and put all these bills together it’s enough to cripple your business,” she lamented.
