Our Commodity Market Process
Production: We set up renewable energy centers at farm cluster communities, where we install solar panels, biogas digesters, and biomass dryers. These centers provide electricity and drying services to the farmers, who can produce high-quality agro-commodities, such as grains, tubers, vegetables, fruits, and spices.
Aggregation: We collect the agro-commodities from the farmers and transport them to our agro-processing hubs, where they are sorted, graded, packaged, and stored. The hubs also have quality control labs and digital weighing scales to ensure the standards of the products.
Exchange: We operate an online platform that connects the agro-processors, traders, and buyers of the agro-commodities. The platform provides real-time market information, price discovery, contract negotiation, and payment facilitation. The platform also allows the users to track the origin, quality, and quantity of the products they are buying or selling.
Delivery: We deliver the agro-commodities to the buyers or processors according to the agreed terms and conditions. The delivery is done by using our own fleet of trucks or through third-party logistics providers. The delivery is also verified by using digital receipts and GPS tracking.
By following this commodity market process, we aim to create a win-win situation for all the stakeholders involved in the agriculture value chain. We also aim to contribute to the sustainable development goals of reducing poverty, hunger, and environmental degradation.
Renewable Energy Solutions can Help Reduce Production Costs.
Investing in renewable energy powered near-farm agro-processing centers in Nigeria presents a significant opportunity to make a positive social and economic impact.
With over 39 million MSMEs with the majority operating in the agriculture sector, there is a clear need for reliable and uninterrupted energy to support their operations and boost their productivity.
By investing in renewable energy solutions, MSMEs in the agro-sector can improve their earnings through value-addition. Becuase these centers are integrated, data can be synchronized. With aggregate data analyzed in real-time, these centers can improve planning and resource management.
