At Indigi Foods, we focus on animal production as well as the processing of neglected indigenous grains.
Currently, we produce a variety of delicious and nutritious plant-based consumables using neglected indigenous grains. Two of the indigenous grains we use are Finger millet and Fonio. Aside from their nutritive benefits, these special grains have been proven to have low carbon and water footprint, are resistant to drought, and exhibit high yield potential compared to maize and wheat. Our goals are: to improve the acceptability of these neglected underutilized grains and up-scale their mass consumption, thus opening vast new markets for farmers, improving rural economies, and curbing malnutrition in Nigeria and Africa. For us, it is not just a business; it is the onset of a revolution!
Our vision is a Nigeria where people eat healthy food that is locally sourced and produced in a sustainable manner.
