The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Akinwunmi Adesina, has challenged agro-allied firms in the country to engage in innovation and value adding services to earn more from the sector.
Speaking at the stand of PRIMLAKS Group at the recently concluded third edition of the AgrikExpo and FoodBext exhibition held in Lagos, the Minister praised the firm for its innovative Sympli brand of convenience food products, which were the star attractions.
He tood time to sample a range of Sympli products that included local delicacies like 'Yam Fries', 'Yam Chunks' and 'Dodo' that were exhibited by Venus Processing and Packaging Limited, a member of the PRIMLAKS Group, commended the organisation for pioneering Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) solutions in Nigeria.
According to him, "I have always said that one of the reasons our yam production does not boom is because we eat yam in the same old ways as our forefathers; Sympli has shown that we can cut yam, deep freeze it and prepare it with its freshness still intact."
