Julius Berger Nigeria Plc has made an audacious move to diversify its investment portfolio into the agricultural processing sector of the Nigerian economy.


Technically renowned for its environmentally friendly policy in all of its business ventures, the engineering firm has also committed to implementing its highly efficient no-waste operational practice at its soon-to-be-commissioned internationally-benchmarked and top quality-driven Cashew processing plant in Epe, Lagos.


Julius Berger made the pledge through its Cashew Project’s Commodity and Marketing Manager, Oyindamola Asaaju, at the recently concluded pioneer Agricultural Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Conference, which was held at the NAF Conference Centre in Abuja. Oyindamola, who represented Julius Berger on the Conference discussion panel as well as at the Cashew roundtable, stated that clear national occupational standards and demand-driven international product quality would define and drive the company’s operations and productivity in Nigeria’s cashew processing industry, where only 5% of Nigeria’s cashew production is currently processed locally.


The conference, organized by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Delegation der Deutschen Wirtschaft in Nigeria (Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Nigeria), drew both local and international corporate and research organizations involved in the cashew production and processing value chain. It also drew a large government delegation, including the permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, as well as other directors and department heads.
