One can enjoy all major varieties of Indian and Pakistani Mangoes in Dubai. Sundari from Pakistan has become a rage here along with Badami from India...

Work
Occupation
I am a food and agri business professional focused on food security agenda in Africa and Asia. Having led cross functional teams for rolling out large supply chain and food production initiatives, I focus on integration of various organisations and individuals towards the common goal. Have provided inputs to various governments, developmental organisations and multi-lateral agencies for economic empowerment of farming communities. I believe private business can support the social agenda in a more sustainable manner.
Employment
  • Export Trading Group (ETG)
    CEO - Food and Beverages, present

I am leading a cross functional team to set up a modern fruits processing unit in Benue State of Nigeria for production of fruit concentrates & other by-products of citrus, mango and pineapple. Aseptic and frozen concentrates would substitute the imports in Nigeria and will also export regionally to Africa and possibly to international markets like Europe, India and rest of Asia.
