Market Demand Identification as well as Aggregation of Agricultural Assets and collaborations necessary to deliver end-to-end value chain play.

Agribusiness demands resources such as land, water, energy, animals, inputs, housing and so on. Money is needed to obtain these resources. Most smallholder farmers have little or no savings and if they ask for a loan then their management capabilities are called into question. Most farmers are not educated and so lack financial capability; hence they have no capacity to improve their income generation.

In order to actualize its superior strategy and value proposition in the Agriculture sector, TAFF Nigeria has curated major strategic alliances and has formed key joint ventures with leading organizations across its operating value chain verticals.  TAFF Nigeria investment strategy is anchored on its unique Agriculture Investment Principles and Models based on Geographical and Asset diversification, in order to manage Agricultural Investment risks and deliver superior returns and consistent value to farmers, JV partners, investors and other stakeholders.
