To create exceptional value for the benefit of all stakeholders
To enhance value creation by deploying proven competencies in select strategic partnerships
Anchored on three pillars: Integrity, Excellence and Relationships
J.O.F.... partnering to maximize value
Nigeria, being a uniquely challenging environment, demands a total hands-on approach where Supply Chain Management is concerned. We have established, in accordance with stakeholder expectations a widely-acknowledged reputation for excellence in our business operations and believe that trust and respect are the currency of sound relationship management.
Some of the strategies we deploy in our activities include:
All of these are complemented by the support received from our bankers to distinguish us as focused, purpose-driven men and women of integrity. The continued patronage of our services by established multinationals prove the success of our strategy.
We are determined to recreate our successes in supply chain services by diversifying into oilpalm plantations and refinery with the backing of our foreign technical partners.
In collaboration with the governments of Ondo and Ogun States we will develop, rapidly advance and optimize yet untapped yields in the oil palm sector.
