The Lagos State Government says it is planning to set up an e-commerce hub or platform for agriculture producers to sell farm produce for export purposes.
The State Acting Commissioner for Agriculture, Ms. Abisola Olusanya, who stated this during the inspection tour of venues for the Eko City Framers Market (Ileya Edition) at St. Georges Primary School, Falomo, Lagos and Opebi Primary School, Opebi, noted that the hub will be centrally located to allow certification of produce take place in a single location.
She said, “We are trying to setup hubs or platforms where we are able to get our producers to come together to be able to produce in a sanitary and hygienic condition, so that we can get organisations like SON and NAFDAC to do the necessary assessment on the items being processed and exported”.
“Essentially, we want to be able to make it easier for our producers, to be able tosell in a way that they do not have to go through many channels to certify their products. We want to ensure that the certification takes place in one location so that they can easily be exported”, the Acting Commissioner added.
Noting that the Lagos is improving the ease of doing agri-business for practitioners, Olusanya pointed out that the job of the State Government is to create an enabling environment across board, adding that the Ministry has an Agric-Business Department which has the mandate to connect farmers with consumers, export community and other stakeholders across the value chain.
The Commissioner averred that the State Government is planning a virtual stakeholders’ engagement in August as part of efforts to determine the inherent challenges in the agric space as well as proffer necessary solutions to mitigate them.
