11% of the world’s population live in extreme poverty down from 28% in 1999 according to the UNDP. Globally, more than 800 million people are still living in less than US$ 1.25 a day and many more lack access to adequate food. Food insecurity is therefore a major fundamental issue for which Agro Innova seeks to address. Agro Innova is empowering poultry farmers to maximize their efficiency through our tailor made technological tools which helps them manage their farms effectively and have access to guaranteed markets through cost reduction solutions and increasing profitability. At Agro Innova, we ensure that our farmers have access to technology and markets that puts them in better position to scale their businesses which helps in the poverty eradication agenda.
It is the SDGs aim to end all forms of hunger and malnutrition by 2030, making sure that all people have access to sufficient and nutritious food all year round through sustainable agricultural practices. Our business operations are focused on helping poultry farmers produce food sustainably by providing them with timely information which helps them source for production inputs, have access to timely market linkage services through a USSD request portal and SMS alerts which provides Good Agricultural Practices. These tools and interventions empower our poultry farmers to produce food sustainably and achieve wholesome outcomes which is made accessible to hotels, restaurants, retailers and consumers who purchase quality eggs and birds at affordable prices.
According to the ILO, more than 204 million people were unemployed in 2015. To lower this unemployment gap, higher levels of productivity and technological innovation is needed to drive the desired economic growth and promote decent work. Agro Innova contributes to this SDG through the deployment of our suite of digital technologies (like our mobile and web-based poultry software Akokotakra) to help achieve full, productive and decent work for all men and women in agribusinesses.
As global population increases, technological progress is key to finding lasting solutions to the growing economic issues. At Agro Innova, our objective is to ensure that our farmers have equal access to industry knowledge and information in real time to help them make informed decisions, foster innovation and entrepreneurship. The poultry industry, just like any other industry cannot survive or thrive without the right infrastructure and constant innovations. Agro Innova therefore is focused on constantly keeping our farmers engaged through our state-of-the-art digital technologies to advance their efficiency and productivity.
