Our integrated animal feed and poultry business provide farmers with high-quality, affordable feeds and chicks.
We’re one of the leading animal feed and day-old chick producers in Nigeria, providing quality, affordable poultry and fresh-water fish feed, and chicks to farmers. We operate one of Nigeria's largest poultry feed mills and day-old-chick facilities in Kaduna State, and in Kwara state, we operate a state-of-the-art aqua feed plant – a first in Sub-Saharan Africa, along with a poultry feed mill. Both these facilities are helping serve Nigeria’s expanding poultry and aquaculture sectors.
Animal Feed & Poultry Breeding
We source ingredients locally to offer high-quality and affordable feeds to poultry farmers and our three poultry feed brands – Chikun, Ultima, and Ultima Plus – are fortified with amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and feed additives, sourced globally, meeting national and international standards. We're committed to quality and safety, and were the first to introduce heat-treated mash and pelleted feeds to Nigeria for high microbial safety.
Our Hatchery & Poultry Farm
Our state-of-the-art breeder farms and hatchery produce quality day-old chicks for broiler farmers. Our cutting-edge animal feed facilities provide local farmers with up to 50 million day-old chicks annually, which can produce over 100 thousand tonnes of poultry meat every year – providing nearly 0.5kg of chicken per person in Nigeria.
To maintain a consistently high standard of animal welfare in our operations, we ensure that our practices align with internationally recognised principles in livestock production systems, determined by the World Organisation for Animal Health. We comply with all applicable laws in relation to our poultry operations, including environmental regulations.
Our advanced laboratory assures quality at each state of production, and all our chicks receive full vaccination and environment-controlled transportation to protect their health.
We offer farmers training on best poultry practices, and we are creating thousands of direct and indirect rural employment opportunities while helping meet rising consumer demand for chicken and fish at affordable prices.
We supply high quality, full-floating freshwater fish feed to more than 15,000 local farmers. Our fish feed brands – Blue Crown, Aqualis, EcoFloat – are specifically tailored to the needs of the African catfish and farming practices in Nigeria and offer balanced nutrition for best-in-class feed conversion ratios. Our newest brand – Alpha, provides an economically priced, quality feed option for the bottom of the pyramid aqua farmer.
We produce competitively priced, specially formulated feed, which meets international quality and safety benchmarks, and we help improve best practices amongst approximately 7,500 Nigerian aquaculture farmers through our team of qualified aqua technicians.
Nigeria’s aquaculture sector has grown by over 20% in the last four years and our world-class facility has nearly doubled the country’s feed milling capacity, helped reduce the reliance on imported feed, and made quality affordable feed available to many farmers. We have recently commissioned our second fish feed line with twin screw extrusion capability and vacuum coating technology. This has doubled our production capacity and positions us to support Nigeria’s aquaculture growth.
