Amo Farm Celebrates Children’s Day

…Champions Child Nutrition

Amo Farm Sieberer Hatchery Limited (AFSH) commemorates Children’s Day with a strong commitment to tackling childhood malnutrition in Nigeria.

This year’s theme, “Investing in our future means investing in our children,” resonates deeply with AFSH’s mission. The company emphasizes the importance of healthy living for children, particularly through access to protein, a crucial element for reducing stunting and malnutrition.

“Investing in children’s education, skills, and well-being equips them to become future leaders,” says Dr. Ayoola Oduntan, AFSH Group Managing Director. “Part of this investment includes fostering healthy habits like consuming animal protein.”

AFSH’s commitment extends beyond words. The company’s Noiler Bird, a dual-purpose innovation, plays a vital role in this fight. This bird produces four times more eggs and three times more meat than traditional breeds, making it an ideal source of protein for families. Furthermore, its hardiness and low maintenance requirements make it well-suited for backyard farming, empowering rural families with both protein and income generation.

AFSH’s natnudO Foods division ensures access to packaged chicken, beef, and eggs across the nation, further bolstering protein availability for children. Additionally, the natnupreneur program empowers farmers to participate actively in poultry farming, contributing to agricultural development.

Dr. Oduntan emphasizes AFSH’s dedication to national agricultural advancement. “Through Noiler Bird, we aim to increase access to chicken and eggs in all communities. Empowering over 1.3 million households in small agribusinesses enhances food security and paves the way for healthier children.”

The press release highlights the alarming statistics on malnutrition in Nigeria, citing UNICEF data revealing that 100 children under five die from malnutrition every hour. Furthermore, the country has the second-highest burden of stunted children globally. AFSH recognizes the urgent need to increase Noiler farming to effectively address this national health crisis.

Amo Farm produces over one million chicks per week, encompassing layers, broilers, and their innovative Noiler. The company plans to increase production by 30% annually to meet the rising demand for protein in the country.

Launched in 2014, the Noiler Bird exemplifies AFSH’s commitment to innovation and social responsibility. This Children’s Day, the company reaffirms its dedication to fostering a future where all Nigerian children have access to a healthy and fulfilling life.
