GOLDEN MORN, one of Nestlé Nigeria’s leading brands, has presented seed funds to help 25 young agripreneurs who emerged as winners of the Agripreneurship program in 2023 to scale their businesses.

The GOLDEN MORN Agripreneurship Webinar Series, is a collaborative initiative between the Brand and the Enterprise Development Center of the Pan Atlantic University, designed to promote sustainable food systems by increasing youth engagement in the agricultural sector.

The program provides training, financial assistance, mentorship, and networking opportunities to young entrepreneurs involved in, or aspiring to venture into agriculture. Over 2,000 young agripreneurs have benefited from the initiative since its inception in 2021.

At the presentation of grants to the successful Agripreneurs, Wassim Elhusseini, MD & CEO of Nestlé Nigeria PLC, emphasized the pivotal role of youth involvement in agriculture for building sustainable food systems. “To establish sustainable food systems, we must ensure youth participation in agriculture.

Nestlé is therefore dedicated to helping young people develop the capabilities and skills they need to drive innovation in agriculture. Today, as we celebrate and empower the 25 agribusinesses who have demonstrated exceptional dedication and passion for shaping the future, we are delighted with the positive impact of the continuous investment by GOLDEN MORN.”

In a statement, the Project and Finance Manager of the Enterprise Development Center (EDC), Pan Atlantic University, Obianuju Okafor said, “The Enterprise

Development Center is thrilled to partner with Golden Morn to provide essential skills and knowledge to young agripreneurs. The Webinar Series has been impacting individuals and businesses since 2021 with a focus on best practices in agribusiness. This collaboration underscores a shared commitment to empower and enhance the offerings of aspiring agripreneurs, contributing to the growth and sustainability of the agricultural sector”.
