The Lagos State Government, yesterday, revealed plans to build fresh food hubs in three different areas namely Ajah, Agege, and Abule Ado.
In a statement, the State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said Lagos is eager to unlock its potential even as it secures its food chain.
Sanwo-Olu said the newly unveiled fresh food hub in Mushin spanning 6400 square metres is equipped with ample parking and storage to support farmers in Lagos and combat post-harvest losses.
According to the governor, this approach to food distribution will revolutionise the way his administration addresses inflation and tracks produce in Lagos.
Sanwo-Olu added that it will also help Lagos to maximise its comparative advantage as a market state, thereby, reducing the stumbling blocks affecting food security-market information, intermediary integration and contractual certainty.
