Industry: Agriculture (Potato Farming and Processing Business plan in Nigeria)
PATILAD Potato Farms is standard and registered commercial farm that will be based in kajola, Ondo State. We produce fresh potatos, potato flakes, French fries and other products. We produce high quality potato that could be consumed fresh in the form of mashed potatos, potato pancakes, potato soup, potato salad, etc. PATILAD Potato Farms also involve in the production of high quality seedlings to meet local and international needs for the purpose of re-planting. We are investing in the critical enabling components that will ensure the long-term sustainability of the industry. We own 1200 hectares of potato field and 10 hectares ready for processing facility in Ondo. We have also reached an agreement with several food technologies to supply our French fries and potato flakes.
Nigeria is the fourth biggest producer of potato in Sub-Saharan Africa with a production yield of about 843.000 tonnes per year. Because of an inadequate supply of good quality seeds, inadequate storage facilities, poor diseases and pest management the average yield (3.1 ton / hectare) in Nigeria is the lowest in Sub-Saharan Africa. The usage of modern agriculture technics and equipment will boost the productivity of the Nigerian potato value chain. There are proven practical technics that potato yields of 25 ton / hectare and more are possible to harvest on the Plateau area. The explosive demand for their supply is largely triggered not just by their tasty nature, but by the highly nutritious value they contain. Depending on whether it is the sweet potato or the irish potato, a medium-sized potato gives extremely low 110 calories, contains zero amounts of cholesterol, fat, sodium, and are rich in Vitamin C, Potassium, iron, Vitamin B6, and fibre.
Asides from the fact that we have secured the required farm land and most of the farm equipment and machines, we have also hired some key employees who are currently undergoing training to be able to fit into the ideal picture of the 21st century commercial banana farm workforce that we want to build. Our heavy equipment will be leased out to farmers in need of such services at a specific fee. Our storage facilities will also provide storage to other users.
Our company is being founded to grow upon an extensive array of biological and horticultural education, experience and the research of its founders, we also maintain a rigorous industry standard. With our existing 1000 tons capacity standard storage facility and the development of additional 12,000 tons capacity, the issues of storage of potato will be greatly addressed. PATILAD Potato Farm is proposing a 5000kg/hr capacity factory for the production of high quality French fries.
