In some parts of Africa,and in Nigeria where my business is located, there is a problem of farmers heavily abusing drugs and failing to observe drug withdrawal periods so that most of the animal products like eggs,meat,milk consumed contain drug residues. With our product and services, we will ensure and solve Antibiotic resistance in both animals and humans and make available good and wholesome meat for human consumption and a fast and effective delivery system to our consumers at an affordable price. VAIF will ensure good health and wellbeing of humans through the production of animals adopting zero drugs use policy and where necessary ensure a good drug withdrawal period; thereby selling animal products that are free of drug residue; in the long we will minimize the effect of unemployment within this region.
Our target market is every household that consumes produce from livestock farms be it meat, milk, and the skin (leather) used for bags, belts and shoes production et al. So also a large chunk of manufacturing companies that depends on livestock farms for some of their raw materials.
The approach to promote VAIF will be through direct sales of product to shopping malls, restaurants, hotels, etc. We also intend to use registered government agencies involved with livestock sales, connections obtained from different conferences and seminars attended, and make targeted adverts through the Internet to get the information out to a larger audience. There will also be an initial bonanza to our target market which will help us kick-start our sales.
Our mission is to; use appropriate preventive measures on livestock instead of drugs, unless absolutely necessary, to keep this farm transparent and honest, to continually strive towards sustainability, and always be on the watch for ways to refine the farming methods, and to be fair to all parties involved in the continuation of this farm; Myself, patrons, suppliers, and animals.
