We operate on an integrated global basis to source, store, trade, process and distribute grains and oil seeds including wheat, corn, oil seeds, barley and sorghum, as well as vegetable oils and meals.

If you are formulating your own feed, you know that a number of factors can impact feed ingredient quality. This can include harvest conditions, the development of new hybrid crops and changes in production equipment, to name a few. To ensure you can maintain performance and profitability, you need to understand the exact nutritional value of your feed. We have the capabilities to help you make sure your business has the best nutrition at the right cost.
Also, Fonwose Global Services Limited specialises in the establishment and management of industrial as well as smallholders’ plantations and allied processing and down stream industries. Crops produced and processed by the company include oil palm, pineapple, plantain and cassava. Our strong origination capabilities made it feasible for value-addition and direct marketing of our agro-products to regional buyers. Many of our products undergo primary and intermediate processing before they are delivered to the final customer. These and other value chain services have allowed for the building of synergies between our activities in the origin and destination markets.
Fosegroup is involved in cassava production, processing and export. Cassava (Manihot esculenta) is a perennial woody shrub of the Euphorbiaceae family. It is grown principally for its tuberous roots but its leaves are also eaten in some parts of Africa and are used as animal feed in parts of Asia. The roots are 25 to 35 percent starch and the leaves contain significant amounts of protein and other nutrients. Cassava is a hardy crop, tolerant to extreme ecological conditions and even thrives on impoverished soils.
As part of a fully integrated production chain from seedlings to finished product, FoseGroup aspires to be a leading player in the oil palm industry in Nigeria. Oil Palm is important both as a food crop and for commercial applications ranging from soaps and cosmetics to candles and bio-diesel.
We have started to aggressively pursue growth in plantain supply for the domestic market and pineapple for export.
Our services include: Consultancy, Training, Laboratory Analysis, Pond Water Management, etc. Our service technicians, veterinarians, and aqua technical service teams routinely visit farmers to ensure animals and fish are cared for properly.
Post-Harvest & Marketing
Fonwose Global Services Limited provides the essential link between farmers and consumers. In almost every growing region in West Africa and trading centres in bordering regions, there is a FoseGroup buying agent. Not only does this allow us to buy volumes at competitive prices, but also our presence at the grassroots level gives FoseGroup access to critical farm gate information to support marketing and trading decisions.
Fosegroup activities in the post-harvest sector are focused on ensuring enhanced value of food and agricultural products through the application of cost-efficient and environmentally-sound post-harvest techniques, particularly those which contribute to reducing losses and to increasing the efficiency of the post-production system. Activities within our post-harvest system include grading, handling, storage, primary processing, packaging, and marketing.
Market development is critical if African farmers are to more fully participate in global trade. To support this, we have developed a network of up-country procurement units and warehouses.
